chicago | a city dressed in layers

April 21, 2013 § Leave a comment

We just returned from a 10-day trip to Chicago to visit Kate, see art and architecture and eat delicious food (and oh boy, did we). One thought kept coming to me as we wandered around public sculptures, through the Art Institute, around downtown, on the fabulous architectural boat tour, through Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, studio and neighborhood, and the Botanic Garden…this is a city dressed in layers. Kate reminded me that the proper term is thickening (which was happening to us after every meal). In April Chicago was missing the bright spring colors we have in northern California, but it made up for it in a festival of layers and texture (and food, did I mention the food yet?).
