Chicago

They say big cities are melting pots

And it is true

But some cities are better chefs

And Chicago

has been simmering a long time

creating a depth of flavor

all it’s own

 

 

~Melanie Thomason

Just reflecting back on my lovely trip to Chicago a little over a year ago.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Quote-Winston Churchill

“Many men stumble over the truth from time to time,

but most pick themselves up

and hurry off as if nothing happened.”

You’re ALL individuals! (from Life of Brian)

Brian: Please, please, please listen! I’ve got one or two things to say.
The Crowd: Tell us! Tell us both of them!
Brian: Look, you’ve got it all wrong! You don’t NEED to follow ME, You don’t NEED to follow ANYBODY! You’ve got to think for your selves! You’re ALL individuals!
The Crowd: Yes! We’re all individuals!
Brian: You’re all different!
The Crowd: Yes, we ARE all different!
Man in crowd: I’m not…
The Crowd: Sch!

Undoing (with audio)

Black

on grey

on twilight,

the purple dusk

and bruised toenail

sliver of moon.

The trees

are dark beasts

on the horizon

and I rode- I strode,

on my own two-feet

to the gallows,

the sad-sweet moment

of my undoing

its not magic

but something else

altogether—

Like a first smile,

like a newly found element.

Something else,

yes, something else entirely.

There is a face in the moon,

a skull,

a dry, dead grinning thing

and it is this,

it is always this

I return to.

wet night (50 word story)

he ordered himself another beer, smiling at the

pretty girls and shot glasses all in a row

outside the thunder roared and the sky split open

the old man looked at him with a knowing smile and said,

“Hope you brought your raincoats boy, its gonna be a wet night.”

the now

We are not time travelers

I’m still waiting on Hawk to build that time machine

though he seems to have flown away from the blogosphere

so for now, we are confined to living in the now

changing the past is impossible

so can we try to start fresh moving forward?

can we leave past relationships behind us?
