"A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable."
I watched gray skies pelt the lake with rain while choppy waves drew me closer. Chilled winds called to me like a lover, whispering their sweet nothings on billowy clouds.
I'm so blessed to work less than four blocks from the Chicago Lakefront.
Majestic skyscrapers behind me and Lake Michigan literally at my feet. I always feel free when I'm there.
It's been such an EXHAUSTING two weeks now that I'm working three jobs. Lots of anxiety meeting so many new people and trying to learn different tasks.
To calm my nerves, I've been going to the lakefront every morning before starting work. To merge with nature for a bit so that I'm grounded and comforted and rejuvenated.
Watching colors and shapes unfold before my eyes--Mother Nature creating a painting for all of Chicago to see....at least for those who stop and notice.
Thankfully it rained almost every day this week. Storm clouds mixed with a clearing sky make for breathtaking views. At times it moved me to tears. Just so very special.
Here are some of my favorite pics taken throughout the past couple weeks.....
Ahh, A good way to start the workday, wouldn't you say?
Maybe one day I'll be able to share this loveliness with someone special instead of always coming here alone.
In time, Dean. In time.....
