Sunday afternoon without even realizing it, my water broke at about 5pm. Monday at noon I began with contractions at 30 mins apart. At around 5pm I checked into the hospital as my contractions were 5 mins apart by then. At around 6:30 pm the contractions where 1 minute apart and they felt horrible. I wanted to go natural birth but my body almost asked for an epidural but by then it was 7:30pm, the nurses checked and I was fully dilated. Baby was born at 8:35 pm. Wait time is over and I’m overjoyed holding my beautiful treasure 🥰🤱🏼#lakeshoredrive #myview #prenticewomenshospital #northwesternhospital #itsagirr #motherhood

I’m taking a different route with my next set of drawings. I’m redoing photos I’ve taken on my runs. My plan with this one is to tint it with some watercolor.
I really want to capture what the essence of a memory is. For centuries we’ve used photos for the purpose of remembering a point in time. But since the age of free digital information we take so many photos they can’t possibly be used for this purpose. They have instead become a vehicle for instant gratification through social media. And then forgotten. Right now I have over 5000 photos on my phone/cloud. I don’t have 5000 memories.

Anyway, my point is that I’m trying to take a photograph and interpret it through the lens of memory to come up with an end result that has more value than the 4,181st picture on my phone. It’s time to make images have value again.

Titled: Lakeshore drive
Staying alive on Lakeshore drive
Quit your shuck, buck and jive
I’m gonna ride
Lakeshore drive
Battle of the bands
The origin of man
Sprinkle the ashes of my tears
Expose, explore, eject my innermost fears
I’m a red wine kind of guy
Don’t hand my a beer
The old Miami or a Chicago dive....screw it
Take me for a Sunday ride
Let my spirit fly on
Lakeshore drive
Lakeshore drive
Lakeshore drive

Chicago gets its tap / drinking water from Lake Michigan. Those "houses" out in the lake are offshore water intake "cribs" that take water and transport it via tunnels 200 ft below the lakebed, to the water treatment facilities, including the Jardine plant, the largest in the world. There are 9 such cribs, ranging 0.3 - 3.3 miles from the shore. Most were built in the 1800s, when people were getting cholera from using water collected from the shoreline, water tainted with human effluvia. By placing the intakes far out into the lake, cholera rates plummeted. Creating these in the 1800s, especially the tunnels under the lakebed, was considered a technological and engineering marvel. I still find them amazing. Pic taken today 6:58 am.

I'll just continue daydreaming of winter back in the Windy City while "L' inverno" trills loudly in the back of my head.

“I found earth!!”
.
Yesterday, we spent the day at @adlerplanet for one of their free days for Illinois residents. Adler is always a lot of fun - especially since Lily is obsessed with all things space... and Addy is obsessed with all things that her big sis is obsessed with. I love the free admission days but I did break my own rule... we arrived over two hours after the planetarium opened. I usually try to get to the museums within half hour of opening. So.... parking was fun lol. But we still had a blast.
.
Need something to do today? Adler has free admission again today!
