Day 2002: What gives you a lift?

In times like these,  it’s important to ask the question “What gives you a lift?”

What gives me a lift includes a visit to Chicago,

embracing that it’s my time to fly, and most of all, coming home.

My friend Dave guarantees that watching this will give me a lift:

 

It did!  I’m sure your comments will give me a lift, too.

Gratitude, as always, gives me a lift. Thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.

Day 2001: A Real Piece of Art

Yesterday, in Chicago, Illinois, USA, I saw this:

Is that a real piece of art?  Do any of my other photos today show real pieces of art? Or real pieces of anything else?

This post has 70 photos, but who’s counting? (For the answer to that question, please see yesterday’s post.)

In case it was difficult to see the real pieces of art in one of the photos above, here’s a closer look at it:

That’s the exterior of the Chicago Tribune building, which includes real pieces of art from around the world, including pieces of Edinburgh Castle and the Taj Mahal.

Here‘s a video about a real piece of art featured in today’s post:

Here‘s another one:

I’ve been working on real pieces of a new song, which somebody recorded when I performed it yesterday. Perhaps a real piece of  that will show up on YouTube soon, too.

I’m looking forward to real pieces of comments, below.

A real piece of gratitude to all the real pieces of art and real pieces of other things that appeared in today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.
