6 chicagoversarie!


i moved to chicago four years ago yesterday. because i needed to get away and this was the only place to go.

it was a decision that inconvenienced everyone i knew. and one i have never once regretted. because i have always known this is where i'm supposed to be.

and last night, sitting at a corner table in istria, the trains roaring overhead every 24 minutes, i was reminded of why i'm here. because there is no place better, no place lovelier, no place more full of possibility than this.

Nope, I can think of several places lovelier. And they all have better winters than Chicago.

yes, but they do not have burgeoning biographical communities brimming with mentors. and people forget our fall. there is nothing better.

I don't like fall...

And seriously? Burgeoning biographical communities brimming with mentors? Sounds like some PR crap that the tourist committee came up with. LOL.
