Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful great city left in the world.
Frank Lloyd Wright, American Architect
I'm visiting Chicago this week...and wouldn't you know my camera is the one thing I forgot! Okay, so maybe waking up in the middle of the night to miss traffic has its down side. Needless to say, this city is fabulous...the right amount of juicy past mixed with ambience and good food. So many of the buildings were built in rebellion to the status quo...love it! Did you know that this is the home of the modern day skyscraper...one guy had the idea of standing a bridge on its side and using the steel structure to support the building...talk about thinking outside of the box! Then there is Lake Michigan which I adore (p.s. Chicago, what's with the litter on the beaches? Knock it off or we'll take away the lake!) Looking out my hotel window, I see "Big Willie" a.k.a. the Sears Tower...an invitation to let our ideas soar...the stars are within our reach if we aim high enough!
