I took a little trip to Chicago this week to visit a friend from high school, do a little shopping, and, especially, relax. After a delicious breakfast on Tuesday, I walked thru Grant Park to the lake and just enjoyed the absolutely perfect day.. it was the kind of day that's made for taking your time and soaking up the sun and listening to the ropes on the sailboats clinking in the wind.
The Detektivbyran EP (new cd coming to my door any day now!) provided the perfect soundtrack for my train ride back to Jaclyn's house, the golden evening light streaming across a big, lush green backyard where a mother pushed her daughter on a swing set. It was absurd how perfectly suburban -- and perfectly gorgeous -- it was. No pictures from that.. I just smiled as we flew past.
