Above the clouds

Most days I look up to admire clouds, find interesting shapes, and enjoy sunrise and sunset.

These photos were taken from the window of the plane. The first one looks like a bear climbing out of the water (clouds) and the others were just ones I found interesting.

The second and last pictures are of the sun from different angles and points of sunset.

Chicago Botanic Garden (micropoem) part two

A quinceañera photo shoot

on a beautiful rose garden day

children gather to watch.

Overheard, “Do you see the princess?”

“May we say hello to the princess?”

Children kept at bay, eyes fixed on the beauty, until ….

“Aren’t we lucky we saw a princess today?”

Chicago Cubs Players Weekend

I’m a lifelong Cubs Fan who no longer lives in Chicago. An afternoon at Wrigley Field is always a good time and an important stop during my week in town.

This weekend is Players Weekend complete with alternate uniforms and nicknames!

For the full experience, a Chicago hot dog (mustard, chopped onions, neon green relish, tomato, dill pickle, and NEVER ketchup!) is required.

And the icing on the cake: Cubs WIN!
