This weekend, I has the pleasure of seeing the Glorious Ones presented by the Bohemian Theatre Ensemble at the Heartland Studio. Since no video's are available from that performance, I am posting this one featuring original cast members from the production at Lincoln Center:
And this one:
If you live in the Chicago area, please, please, please go see this show. It's well worth it!

This was outside the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier. I love this picture because of the vibrancy of the colors. The red of the leaves offsets the green in the neighboring tree. Likewise, you can catch little hints of red and orange in the green tree. When it's put against the backdrop of the Chicago sky, I found myself profoundly moved by the amazing wonder that nature can create.
What I love about this photo is the change in perspective it gives me. I spend my days on Michigan Avenue and thusly see the Hancock Building each and everyday. However, walking back from Navy Pier, I was able to literally see a different side and appreciate it so much more than in recent weeks and months.

"Under heaven, one can only know beauty as beauty because there is ugliness.
One can only know good as good because there is evil." ~ the Tao
This is the quote that ran through my mind when I saw the light hitting this tree on the way back from Andersonville last week. There's something about the shadow and light contrast that truly moved me. Too bad, I then had to return to the reality which is my life.
