I’m digging my new, er, digs down on Chicago’s south side. Here’s a hot of the fall colors slowly turning in the park outside of my building.
This room is always filled with sunlight and is great for either getting work done (like I am now) or just hanging out. you can see Lake Shore Drive, Promontory Point, and the Museum of Science and Industry, and the big park is Harold Washington Park, named after the great Chicago mayor and home to a flock of green monk parakeets (I kid you not!).
Though from the mid-1970s, my buildings have a certain sense of grandeur, particularly at night. Here’s a shot from the train stop–mine is the illuminated building in the center right. Since we’re on the top floor, I can always tell from very far away if Courtney’s home or not based on the lights (our corner is dark here, hence no Courtney).
