Melancholic winter


Photo taken on January 7th, 09 Chicago, IL


Lone car in a driveway


This is what I can see outside looking through misty-glass window (inside my place). What a dreary, soggy, cold and depressing weather we have today. I feel like napping all day long and just forget about the snow I have to shovel later. Hmm, a hot cocoa with marshmallow on top will do…for now…

After all the heavy snow…


You probably noticed by now how much I adore living in the Windy City. I never get tired watching all the beautiful and world famous Chicago skyscrapers. Sometimes I do get tired of the  urban life I lead but I feel lucky that I am able to enjoy my life. By the way, in this picture I’d like to show you the famous Chicago River (we color the river green during St. Patricks holiday) and the bridges where all trains going to the Loop (downtown) meets.


Both pictures were taken earlier this morning (Saturday) while I was on the Brown Line Loop train using Samsung t629 camera phone. Its funny because I always see this lone park every single day but I’ve never been in the park, actually. We usually get a lot of snow every winter but only after we had our first major snowstorm this year that I have finally appreciate that there will always be a certain calmness after each snowstorms. These pictures made me ‘feel’ the tranquility I am looking for in my once-chaotic-urban life.
