The ability to walk in this city, and the places along my route, give me time and the chance to breathe...no meetings, just the time to walk and think. No task lists or thoughts of productivity, just the ability to do nothing...to clear my head. It's sometimes thrilling to forget all deadlines, decend into the subway and reemerge in a "new world," ambling around town without a practical goal in mind beyond simple exploration.
The trip to Chicago was a good one. I've got a few notes and thoughts that I'm trying to compile into something coherent, but until that's finished, I want to share some of the pics I snapped while walking, or biking, around the town.
This will be my first actual, bona-fide trip to Chicago. I've been there before, but only due to a weird circumstance involving transfer between O'Hare and Midway airports. Honestly, this is all part of my grand scheme to complete the Tour de'Sinatra.
