Chicago Art and A Random Quote

Jul 25, 2012

This sticker, which was about 12″ long was attached on a boarded up win­dow in down­town Chicago. It wasn’t far from where I got off the train with Car­o­line and Emily when we were head­ing to Navy Pier. This art piece reminds me of the kind of stamp Julie Fei-Fan Balzer would carve. I like the way the artist has “You can feel it in your mind” mixed among all the doodling.

This neat tile piece was dis­cov­ered as we walked out of a tun­nel and up more stairs than I want to remem­ber. I have no idea where this is but it was on our way to Navy Pier. I’m the one that looks like the total tourists when Car­o­line and I are on an adven­ture. I just fol­low along keep­ing my eyes on her so I NEVER have a clue where I am. I just take pho­tos and look at all the archi­tec­ture and such around me.

This quote really speaks to me right now, I need to make some changes, look for new pos­si­bil­i­ties and of course have the courage to do them. Change is scary but I know it is what needs to be done.

I found this awe­some quote on the back of a guy’s t-shirt while stand­ing in line to get another flight out of Chicago after ours was can­celled. Mar­garet Mead was oh so right when she uttered these words.

All three of these inspi­ra­tional pho­tos were found the very same day just walk­ing around. It really is true, if you keep your eyes open you will find inspi­ra­tion all around you.
