Lake Michigan, Chicago, Illinois.

Quote of the day: “It is our responsibility to look for meaning in life, even in the darkest times, and whatever the circumstances we always have a vestige of free will.”  —  Victor Frankl

Daily gratitudes:
That I am finding my gratitudes even on this sad day
The faint rainbow on the way home
Great chicken piccata at a new restaurant find
The peace in the Tattered Cover

Chicago, Illinois.

Quote of the day: “A little while with grief and laughter, And then the day will close; The shadows gather . . . what comes after No man knows.”  —  Donald R. P. Marquis

Daily gratitudes:
My overalls – I love them
Kelsea being in a good mood today
Making progress on unpacking
My neice’s cat is unexpectedly sweet (I think being an animal shaman helps our relationship)
Being back on the Atkins Diet
Amazing storm clouds over the eastern plains – made me want to go chase tornados (maybe next weekend)

Highland Park, Illinois.

Quote of the day: “Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.”  —  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Daily gratitudes
Finding the perfect thing at the perfect price at auction
Giving with no expectations
Country roads
San Pellegrino
Those who served.

Photo title: Incredibly Close

Chicago, Illinois.

I took this a number of years ago, when the convex (?) mirror in Chicago was still a work in progress.
