    Chicago Rocks!

    Chicago is so beautiful, especially during the fall! Nothing like being high above the city in the Lake Point Tower on a rainy day just gazing out across the city and Lake Michigan.. So lovely! :)

    Hope Echoes In Grant Park

    Lsd On The Damen Factory

    The abandoned factory on Damen right off I-55 is my favorite spot in the Universe. Life kind of changes when you find a place that you would be comfortable dying. I dropped acid for the first time on top of it and I almost jumped off. Not in a depressed suicidal way, in an odd...
