Day 20 of a Month of Gratitude

Light and Architecture is all I need…

Wow, another sunny day in Chicago with temperatures of up to 60 degrees! What a gift. Of course, I decided to go running even though my legs still felt heavy from the 6 miles I ran two days ago. When I went outside I saw an airplane so I thought that was a hopeful sign that the world will go back to normal soon. I was running MUCH slower today but the sunshine kept me going. With the slower pace I began to notice how quiet and beautiful the city seemed. I mean, Chicago IS beautiful, no doubt. But today’s quiet beauty seemed different. My thought was that while this terrible pandemic is unfolding, the world is shedding its outer layer, unveiling a more beautiful layer underneath, and thereby revealing its original form which is the TRUTH. And what could be more beautiful than truth? It’s like appreciating a beautiful face seen naked instead of with too much makeup on. Or appreciating a pasta dish with wholesome, simple, pure ingredients (like in Italy!) instead of putting too many other stuff in it. Yes, I guess I’m a purist.

As we all are going through this crisis together we will all experience change, for sure. And although change is painful there is always a lesson as well as growth. And a life without growth is death. So today, I choose to be grateful for this current growth spurt in our world.
