This Morning

I was walking down North Avenue, on my way to work. I had my iPod with me, and I found myself incredibly happy to be back in Chicago. I was literally strutting (STRUTTING) down the street. I felt great, and I attribute most of how I felt to how much sun I got over the past few days. Everywhere I…

Evidence Of A Storm

Saw this on my way to work this morning. The pine tree in the yard was draped with tons of leaves that obviously got blown from somewhere else. They looked less from a tree, and more like plant leaves that got ripped by, what must have been some seriously strong winds. I was dead to the world last night. I…
