Changing Of The Seasons

Oh the changing of the seasons it's a pretty thing to see
And though I find this balmy weather pleasin'
There's the wind come from tomorrow and I hear it callin' me
And I'm bound for the changing of the seasons
Oh it's blowin' in Chicago and it's snowin' up in Maine
And the Islands to the south are warm and sunny
And I've got to feel the earth shake and I gotta feel the rain
And I've got to know a taste of more than honey

So don't ask me where I'm goin' or how long I'm gonna be away
Don't make me give you all the hollow reasons
I'll think of you like summer and I might be back some day
When my heart miss the changing of the seasons
Oh it's blowin' in Chicago...
[ guitar ]
Oh it's nothing that you said and it ain't nothing that you done
And I wish I could explain you why I'm leavin'
But there's some men need the winter and there's some men need the sun
And there's some men need the changing of the seasons
Yeah it's blowin' in Chicago...

Mamie

Mamie beat her head against the bars of a little Indiana town and dreamed of romance and big things off somewhere the way the railroad trains all ran.
She could see the smoke of the engines get lost down where the streaks of steel flashed in the sun and when the newspapers came in on the morning mail she knew there was a big Chicago far off, where all the trains ran.
She got tired of the barber shop boys and the post office chatter and the church gossip and the old pieces the band played on the Fourth of July and Decoration Day
And sobbed at her fate and beat her head against the bars and was going to kill herself
When the thought came to her that if she was going to die she might as well die struggling for a clutch of romance among the streets of Chicago.
She has a job now at six dollars a week in the basement of the Boston Store
And even now she beats her head against the bars in the same old way and wonders if there is a bigger place the railroads run to from Chicago where maybe there is
romance
and big things
and real dreams
that never go smash.

Chicago

Home is where the heart is
Right?
If its true
Why am I so uncomfortable here?
This is my home
I have a house here
And I love my friends here
So why do i feel so out of place?
I miss Chicago
And I miss my house there
And I miss my friends there
I felt whole there.
I miss the sounds of Chicago
And I miss when people 
Yell at each other in traffic
I may be older
But my wounds haven't healed
My heart is missing here
Because my home
Is in Chicago.

Travel Haiku - Millennium Park (Chicago)

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
our cameras freeze a part
of the millennium for us

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
coming out of my mouth
the millennium inside me

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
the millennium inside me cheers
on the millennium outisde

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
we freeze the millennium
with a click of our cameras

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
we stop the millennium
for a friendship picture

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
grinning at the fists
at our own faces

he throws a millenium joke
as she takes his picture
'that's the smartest guy on earth'

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
we take fist at own face pictures
in the steel mirror

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
scowling our faces
for the picture of the millennium

Cloud Gate Steel Mirror
raising my hand up ala
statues of liberty

Chicago
With world-class museums, unparalleled food, and first-rate theater, Chicago's got a legit claim to fame. Check out one of the city's newer additions, Millennium Park, with its quirky public art and fun, warm weather activities. Start off the weekend with yoga in the park and cool off in the fountains, or catch an evening music or dance performance after eating some authentic Chicago deep dish pizza on nearby Michigan Avenue.
