I was walking around Rogers Park yesterday.
It was sunny and warm. People were walking their dogs, and loitering [and littering] with abandon, shouting to babymamas in shortie nightgowns through open windows. It was the kind of day where everyone was just happy to be alive.
I think this is going to be the summer of self-confidence and discovery. You can almost read the writing on the walls around here.
Or the vandalized windows, whichever.
YES. YOU ARE.
