lessons from the windy city

– It is possible to fly. Just run in the prevailing direction of the wind, and jump.

– People do not tie their scarves in knots around their necks for fashion (“We wear our scarves just like a noose…But not cause we want eternal sleep…”-Regina Spektor), but rather, to prevent the scarves from being unwound by the wind. If you don’t wear them like that, you won’t have a scarf for very long.

– You really can feel the weather changing in your bones.
