I love Chicago. Especially in the fall, when you can cozy up in a colorful sweater jacket and scarf and hit the streets for a day of walking, looking at art, architecture, shopping and eating. We ventured forth while taking my granddaughter, Violet, to visit colleges (!!!) nearby and while Jerry and Violet explored the U of Chicago campus, I toured the Robie House, a Frank Lloyd Wright – designed home finished in 1910. What a treat! After that, we visited Millenium Park to see the Bean (officially entitled Cloud Gate Sculpture.) The experience was unlike any other. Here we are gazing at our contorted selves in the giant sculpture:When you go under the sculpture and look up, this is what you see. I can pick Jerry out of the image because he’s taking a picture, but otherwise I’m lost. What you can see, though, are 3 replications of a sweet 16 party, dressed in emerald green satin finery, posing for photos. Mind-boggling and a total crowd pleaser. I love Chicago.
