|HI, I'M A TOURIST!|
THE WRIGLEY BUILDING
I flew to Chicago last week, had pizza in town, and stayed at Mundelein Seminary.
My room had wide windowsill ledges on which to place snacks and books, an old-school radiator, a view of the quadrangle, a bathroom with spacious old sink, wooden medicine cabinet, and patinaed copper fixtures, a simple crucifix on the wall, and a gigantic "living room" (well-worn Schirmer's Mozart sonatas open on the grand piano) into which I padded in the morning to fetch my coffee.
"Now where are the Great Lakes from here?" I asked at one point and was astounded to learn that Chicago is ON a Great Lake, thereby corroborating that I really need to get out more.

Thank you for having me, Word on Fire.
