Back from the Exurbs

Oh, it feels good to be back home in the city. I have a warm spot for Chicago--striving city on the lake that it is--but the miles and miles of suburbs that surround it make me really anxious. All that traffic going from nowhere to nowhere. All that margin with absolutely no connection to the center. I feel unanchored there--and not in a good way. I had better get used to it, though. I'll be spending a lot of time there over the next few months.

But, on the flip side, all the stars aligned for me Thursday night, and I managed to slip into the city for a quick peek at Millennium Park and the new American galleries at the Art Institute. I'll have some impressions of both next week.
