I've always liked Chicago. Flying into and out of this city always makes me feel comfortable, like I can map my progress on a grid-patterned Earth. I like its order and I like its people. I think I could make the midwest my home for a while. We'll see what the northwest has to say about this. I've returned with a desire to get back into painting and drawing more traditionally. A few projects in line and plenty of drive to see them through. So here's to a New Year and the continuation of creation!
