Comments and views from a long-time Chicagoan who was raised in the northern "burbs," raised children in the "burbs," escaped for ten years for the beauty and weather of Northern California, and returned home to be with family.

Now living in the South Loop, I crave the culture missed by living in a remote part of the world, and enjoy experiencing city living with all it has to offer, including restaurants, theatre, sports, shopping, and people.

And, also I care deeply about this great city, and am concerned about the economy, the violence, the schools, politics, and the environment. So, I hope this blog will allow me to voice an opinion about such things, and to initiate and continue a dialogue with others who care about sharing their views as well.

So, it's about City Living, and all facets of what that means.
