Despite looking phallic…

… it’s really quite beautiful.

It’s been a long time since I lived in Chicago. In fact, it’s been nearly 15 years since I have been back in California. Where did / does the time go?

Since I left Chicago, so many things have changed. Millenium Park did not exist when I lived there. Marshall Field’s is now Macy’s. State Street (that great street) now allows cars again. And most importantly, my friends Ralph and Martin and Kris and Nancy … no longer exist in Chicago. I really have no reason to go there anymore.

Except maybe to see The Chicago Spire.


scheduled to open in 2010. which really is just around the corner.
