Electric Kool-Aid Daisy Test

This giant-ass gerbera daisy was revolving limpidly over the Mag Mile last night.

Did you know gerbera daisies were discovered in the Transvaal (South Africa) in the 19th century?

I don't know what this has to do with Saks Fifth Avenue, Garretts Popcorn, the Peninsula Hotel, or any other Boule Mich. outfits.

A daisy convention, conference on seminal South African botanists, or Laugh-In night at RL?

It's still not spring.

Cuts With Beauty

I love the colors in the Loop when it's just dusk.

The angles there seem devastatingly sharpened.

You can have your Rockies, your capes, your Appalachians that farrow down to the gentle hills of Kentucky, your craggy sea-sprayed shorelines.

Sometimes geometry that's man-made is exquisite, too.

Peanut Butter Jelly Time

We finished the Conservatory at Second City on Monday.
I still don't know what the "what" is.
Oh, well.
I heart these kids.
