Native Tourist

Last week I spent some time with an old friend in my old Chicago neighborhood, Wicker Park.  We walked the streets on a gorgeous summer day catching up, and snapping pictures at will. While there have been many changes in the neighborhood since I lived there, so much felt the same.  We ate lunch at the divine Big Star (Taco Bar)–cheap, hip, delicious, loud.  Try it!

We saw the cool, the run down, the rehabbed, the restaurants, the shops, the park, the community art, the graffiti, the clubs, my old condo building.

Take an afternoon and really explore your neighborhood, see views you haven’t seen before. Look at your world from a different perspective.  Make the same new again. C

Peaceful Wicker Park–so much prettier than when we lived there!
