Let us go away together.
Call in sick one day & travel to the sea.
Can we? Shall we? One day very soon ..




I knew coming to America would change me, but I always
only really thought about it as a whole, as if it was merely
this one big chaotic experience, I never really thought of
all the little things that I'd fall in love with along the way.

Last Saturday night we saw a dance festival in the park,
The Martha Graham Dance Company, a piece by Jiri Kylian
(both of which I spent the better part of high school studying)
& a Tchaikovsky Pas De Deux. I can now officially die happy.

Even aside from that though, it was easily one of my favourite
days in the city so far. We got bombarded by a gay hair stylist,
got free cookies at Subway (they took pity on our severe lack
of understanding of American coins). We went a little crazy
with our tourist photos, climbing water towers & riding (or in
my case, surfing) the Chicago Bull! We had lunch with these
two street performers, one of which was a mime who stole our
camera to snap some self-portraits. And we ended the night
with all the endless possibilities that I can never help but feel
when walking through neon-lit cities at nighttime. It was infinite.
