The Do-It-Yourself Messiah at the Harris Theater: Just What the Doctor Ordered

Last night I went to and participated in the Do-It-Yourself Messiah at the Harris Theater.  I do not sing in a choir.  I do not sing in a band.  I do not sing.  But I love to listen to other people sing!  So to be surrounded by people who do sing was therapeutic.  The sound... Read more »

Part II...

Chicago is a much different place on a sunny Monday morning.  That is the time to do your sight seeing.  Traffic was light for crossing streets and I felt like I could snap away with my camera as much as I wanted.  The 9-10 block walk between Ogilivie and Millennium Park is mostly theaters, restaurants,...

Next stop...France

As a family, we have always loved going in to THE city.  Chicago, that is.  I know that it seems big and scary to some or confusing and traffic-filled to others, but if you just do it, you won’t be sorry.  It can be so close, but also so far if you don’t take advantage... Read more »
