Nice Stems

Currently Listening To: Alopecia by Why?
Currently Reading: Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut

After reading the Wam Bam! Check Out Those Gams! post over at Quintessentially Quirky I couldn't help but find subconscious inspiration by my daily visit to the closet followed by my morning walk to work. Located about three blocks from my house is the fantastic sculpture installation at the south end of Grant Park entitled Agora by the artist Magdalena Abakanowicz. It's a series of 106 nine foot tall iron cast headless leggy sculptures. I have always been partial to this installation, and find myself walking through it sometimes thinking about how isolated and sad they make feel, before pausing to look at the skyline and then continuing on my way. It's a powerful work, and I am very lucky to have it only a few blocks from my front door.
