Chicago’s space from, well, SPACE!!

To start the week I thought it would be a wonderful motivator to share our fair Chicagoland from afar; space far, to be precise.

A good friend from Canada was visiting us here in Chicago during the past few days.  We went to the Adler Planetarium (I’ll be writing a post about the Adler sometime soon) which inspired me to write a post about Chicago from a different perspective.

The majestic and magical wonder of seeing one’s city from ‘out there in space’ is an extraordinarily humbling experience, wouldn’t you agree?

The thoughts I feel when I look at these photos all come back to the same thing:  togetherness.  When we see ourselves from the eyes of an astronaut, it should remind us that we are all riding on the planet collectively; to me, this is an important reminder of perspective.  Perhaps it takes an astronaut with an ability to allow us to see the world as one in order for us to grasp its importance.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday; let your perspective of each other become those of the “space seers”!
