"Rest time is not waste time. It is economy to gather fresh strength... It is wisdom to take occasional furlough. In the long run, we shall do more by sometimes doing less."

  • reaching to touch
.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
--Henri Nouwen

  • 225-205 michigan plaza
.
my favorite feature of michigan plaza by far was red awning that accented the entry to the building! it was nice to see how the color popped against the very neutral colors of the building when looking up.
.
my favorite thing about walking around @chicago was the sheer amount of architecture that was really well done. i highly recommend a visit.
.
happy travel Tuesday!

  • surf and rocks
.
the #surf pounded the #rocks smoothing their surfaces and making their own #song, their own rhythm and i stood mesmerized. i missed the sound of the #ocean. "i could live on the #beach," i thought to myself. this should be what i see everyday.
.
.
so glad for views like this!

  • su casa mexican ristorante
.
it just felt a little odd to see a mexican #restaurant #sign in the fray of all the other signs as i walked around @chicago. being one based in Texas i was not sure what to expect. maybe i will try one of these the next time i am in Chicago.
.
the other thing was the contrast of all the colors on the sign to the neutrals all around! here is to you weekend being the bright spot in your week for rest and recuperation.
.
happy Saturday!

  • exelon pavilions
.
per wikipedia the exelon pavilions are four buildings that generate electricity from solar energy and provide access to underground parking in @millenium_park on the loop community area of @chicago.
.
I am not sure which of the four i took a photo of as i did not get a photo of a marker or a street address near by. however looking that this reminds me sooo very much of the #architectural nature of Chicago. i hope to go back one day when it is temperate to do more exploring.
.
hope your weekend gives you a chance to explore the places where you are! happy Friday!

There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.
