Chitown’s Soul

Chicago park shadows

Surround yourself with the beauty of nature to calm the mind and refresh the soul. Observe how the wind moves through the leaves; how the sun’s rays push through the trees. The joys of walking in the park with a furry friend or an intimate picnic or fun gathering with family. This is living! There’s just something special about immersing oneself in nature, it leaves one better than before.

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’.

A little inspiration from Chicago’s loveliest green space – Grant Park and Millennium Park.

Agora Grant Park Chicago
May we never lose our wonder. May we never neglect the simple joys of life. May we embrace simplicity. May we appreciate nature and its wonder. 
Chicago Park District
Canada geese, famous for their ‘flying-V’ formations, are all over Chicago Parks. Apparently these migratory birds have cottoned on to junk food and no longer migrate. Despite our good intentions, we’re only doing them a disservice when we feed them.
Chicago Park
Chicago’s front yard – this gorgeous landscaped park hosts public art displays, museums and festivals.
Memorial Day Grant Park
Memorial Day is so much more than a long weekend of relaxation, food and getaway plans. Moved by this! … the many rows of tiny American flags planted, just below the Logan Monument in Grant Park, to remember and honor American soldiers lost in war. Mucho respeto!
General John Logan Grant Park
Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.”, musingly by Emily Dickinson. On a hillside in Grant Park, you’ll find an equestrian statue by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, of General John Logan.
Cloud Gate The Bean Chicago
The earth reflects the glory of the Lord, all we need to do is listen and look for His fingerprints … Reflections, Cloud Gate, Millennium Park.
Jay Pritzker Pavilion
Open air concert hall, Jay Pritzker Pavilion, where the magic of the Grant Park Music Festival, concerts and events happen.
Crown Fountain Chicago Park
Yet another phenomenal piece in Chicago’s public art collection, Crown Fountain, Millennium Park, designed by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa.. The towers project images of the faces of Chicago citizens. “A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.” – W. Irving
Bella Musing Chicago
And that’s a “wrap” from Michigan Avenue, Chicago.

Con amor!
