Surround yourself with the beauty of plant life. It calms the mind and refreshes the soul. Personally, I love walks in the park … whether it’s a relaxing one with a furry friend, an intimate picnic or fun gathering with family. I love how the wind moves through the leaves. I love how the sun’s rays push through the trees. There’s just something special about immersing oneself in the fusion of nature and art that leaves one better than before.
I believe that appreciation helps us find those ‘greener’ pastures in our ordinary-right-now-life. When we carve out time to appreciate the Creator and all that He has done in our lives, we zone into the blessed ‘now’. I am immensely grateful for so many things in my life, all glory to God and God alone. If I had to document all my stories, I would have to write and photograph well into eternity. Dios es un Dios grande. He has done and continues to do exceedingly abundantly above all that I could ask or think. He fills me with wonder.
I hope to inspire you with a few ordinary moments from Chicago’s loveliest green space, Grant Park and Millenium Park, Chicago. As the saying goes and at the risk of sounding cliche, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. ¡Vamos!… wander with me through Chi-town’s charming landscaped park and yo prometo to add a few touristy captions.
