Impossible to be Silent

Silence?
You want silence?
It is impossible to be silent when there is so much to say.

Being tacit does not seem to be this blackbird’s style.

A Last Look

As lethargic as the cold can make me feel at times, here is what I hope is a last look at winter reflections.

Lost in the Rainforest

As I thought back to my short time of adventure in El Yunque National Rainforest, I wondered how many people get so distracted by the beauty of mountain after mountain of tall trees and the calls of birds and tree frogs that they end up getting lost in the rainforest.

For anyone with such a lack of a sense of direction as myself, it would be so easy to do just that.  Get distracted and lost!  For a little while at least, it might feel like I was lost in paradise.

Is there any other reason necessary for a fun, snowy walk along the trail?

Corncob Towers

A view of Chicago’s Marina City condos (also known to some as the Corncob Towers).

Chicago’s Marina City

There are restaurants and various businesses at street level, followed by garage levels up to the 20th floor.  Above that, condos have a grand view of the Chicago skyline all the way up to the 62nd floor.

Do you think you’d enjoy city life from a Marina Tower condo?
