From the wilderness to Chicago through Gary, Indiana (not pretty), this man who has long lived in small towns with expansive views goes through a little culture shock and visual overload. The heart races and it takes a few moments to adjust and calm down. You're in the big city now.
Where scenes of the idyllic hang on museum walls.
A twinge; I used to live there. Someone's reality is a captured zoo image.
Now a stranger in a strange land.
Finding a regal exotic new beauty.
In so many places I look.
