“Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful great city left in the world.”
-Frank Lloyd Wright
I was leaving one of the buildings here at UIC, and I saw this. People often view Chicago or cities in general as full of hustle and bustle. I will always respectfully disagree. Today would be a perfect example. Soft gentle breeze fills the space around us. The sun shines bright enough to balance out that wind. Nothing more relaxing than this. I just wanted to lay on the grass and be consumed by my own thoughts. Maybe another day Chicago, maybe.
Today, take it easy. Don’t try to speed through your day as fast as possible. Yes, you have something of great urgency to finish today. I’d argue that you should relish in the details. Embrace your project or just your day in all of its aspects. Today is a day of thought. Let the weather calm you, and your thoughts inspire you. Have a great day!
