Foolish, Aching, and Mess

When I listen to this music, I’m transported back to Chicago. Michigan Ave., Millennium Park, the Museum, walking in blizzard, waiting in wind chill, loneliness, dreams, art school…

I could not find the justification for paying so much money for art education and the usefulness of artists in society. Yet i so desperately wanted to be a part of the world as an artist and my heart ached when the world seemed indifferent.

Had I heard this song in my Chicago years, I would have been proud of myself and proud of the things I thought meaningless and foolish.
