I love it here. I feel content. It’s hard to write when you’re content.
There is a warm familiarity here through these cold streets. It has the red bricks, the sounds of passing trains and a good level of cement that I’m used to.
Chicago has oodles or personality without being tied to a genre. I have seen Jazz, Blues and Pop here. And I was lucky enough to be front and centre for a Second City Theatre show. It pays to travel alone.
In a headache filled moment I even got the chance to watch the film Chicago on my laptop.
The familiarity makes me think of home. I am happy that I have around six weeks left of this trip but being here makes me excited about the new ways I will be spending my time and the possibilities that lie ahead.
I have been further editing my book about Ammerella Twigg, and making music with the safety of my headphones.
I have three more days to delightfully spend with Chicago.
Thanks for reading.
