Dream 4


Maybe I am one, too.

The light from the other side


By now, I am sure that everyone knows that I think alleys are just a great place to look for photographic opportunities.

When I was in Chicago, walking up (I think it was “up”) Michigan Avenue (unless it was another street), I saw this fantastic scene:  an alley that was below street level, that curved away from me, but toward the light.

I wanted to follow it.

This, too, shall pass


It’s a shame, really, that someone’s family spent a lot of money getting a nice, big iron urn for the cemetery, and now that urn’s disintegrating – ashes to ashes and all that.

It’s just a matter of time now, until the whole thing gives way.  I wonder if anyone cares….

You know that rule I have? The one about walking around back, to see what’s there?

Yeah, so I didn’t. It was cold. And windy. It was so windy that it was hard to hold the camera still enough to take a picture. But mostly it was cold.

Anyway: rules were meant to be broken.

Especially when it’s cold. And windy.

Robots. Oh, and writing.


I thought this was the funniest store I’d ever seen.  But I didn’t go in to see what their deal was.

It wasn’t until I was working on this post that I thought about trying to find out about it.  Turns out, it’s way cool.  Robot Supply & Repair supports 826Michigan, an organization that helps students learn how to be better writers.  I’ll give you a minute to head over to their website to check it out.

Interesting, wasn’t it?

Anyway, now I wish I’d gone inside and bought a book or a hoodie or some coffee.
