I woke up this morning and decided that I would take a drive up to Evanston. I've been thinking that if I cannot get a job in Indy, then maybe I can try in Evanston. There is so much to do in the area and it is beautiful up there. As I almost reach my destination, I get a call. One of my favorite people in the world is in the area: Aunt Linda! She asked if I wanted to meet up, and of course the answer was yes.
We met in Des Plaines and had lunch at this nice little Italian cafe. We each ordered a glass of wine and talked while we enjoyed our meal. I think she is my wine soul mate because she is one of the few people that enjoys wine at anytime. I love talking to her because she sparks my interest in so many topics. I think she really tries to experience life in many different facets. For awhile I felt like I was on one of our fabulous trips. It was a nice getaway.
After we had lunch I decided to return to my original mission and visit Evanston. I drove to the arts center and thought it was beautiful. The remaining pictures are from that area. I kept thinking about what it would be like to be able to walk to the beach in the summer. I have been talking lately about how I'd like to live by a beach someday. Lake Michigan isn't exactly the same as what I intended, but it would be a start. I hope to go back up to the area when I can dedicate a day to exploring.
Although Indy is my number one choice right now, I think I mostly just want a change, and one that impacts a few aspects of my life. Most people don't like change very much, but I think the possibilities is what makes it so exciting. It could end up being a disaster, but I have to try to find out. Somehow I doubt a disaster will occur.
