I’d rather be a lamppost in Chicago than a millionaire in any other city..
This year we are not in Chicago for this event. Not so sad about it because if it was anything like last year, it will be over crowded again. Though we love walking around the city, 3 million + people is a bit too much for anyone. Feels like you are trapped with nowhere to go.
That being said, I do look forward to getting back home, seeing Brutus everyday, going for walks, and just enjoying city life. There is something about the city that keeps you wanting more and I look forward to being back home. In the meantime, it's also OK to see everyone, and to check out all that has happened in the last two years since we have been here. Everyone has lots to show and tell..
Distance not only gives nostalgia, but perspective, and maybe objectivity...
until next time
