Spotted these on the way to work, near Daley Plaza. While they looked quite beautiful to me, there’s a part of me that feels some sadness in that their journey got interrupted. That these guys were headed elsewhere, but for the trees.
Nearby, for the past few weeks, there’s been a large cross that was put up (to accompany Easter and Good Friday). Probably should have stopped to take some photos of that, but never did.
Remembering that installation, and now seeing this – I’m thinking about our desire to ascend. And how sometimes, despite those aspirations, we remain earthbound.
