I tend to over-complicate things... Life is wonderful in its grays and yellows but sometimes I see in monochrome. I use this space to calm down and see the world in its true colors.

Back from Chicago
I loved Chicago!
Was there for four days, came back yesterday. My firm organized this training session for us in Chicago and flew us there.
Beautiful city, lovely people. Reminded me of New York somewhat - very similar architecture during the art deco periods.
Much more space though than in NY. I miss space and light in New York. Everything is too packed here in Manhattan. Chicago downtown is better planned or maybe it was just planned later with much more room in mind. The streets are much wider and the way the lighting gets into the city from the lake works wonderfully.
Chicago River is lovely. It adds some European charm to the city with lots of bridges and boat cruises.
