Photos and travelogue from the Windy City
Chicago. There is something so appealing about that word, how the letters curve on the page and how they roll in your mouth when you say the word out loud. Chicago. It's almost as if the Art Deco skyline can materialize if you just say the word. - A long form vignette love travelogue with pictures.
Trafalgar Square. What a hodgepodge of people. In the summer afternoon it was busy: all noise and people. I could have loitered at the square all day just people-watching, but everything else around Trafalgar Square is so exciting too - The National Gallery, St. Martin in the Fields, The National Portrait Gallery, and all the captivating details of Charing Cross and the Westminster area.
Sometimes you just need more art in your life. About a year ago I started dedicating more time and energy to the visual arts. I'd always been involved in literature and music and drama, and I'd always appreciated the visual arts; I studied art and architecture in Rome, I frequent museums and galleries, and I am notorious for doodling and drawing in first classroom and now meeting notes. Last year though, I made a real effort to improve those skills.
