Not Just Nature

On an urban orientation to Chicago, our guide said this:

“Everything you see in the city was put there on purpose.”

It is less obvious but just as fruitful to think of what you can learn from the urban environment.  What we make as those made in the image of the creator says a lot about us.  Flowers in plastic buckets along side buildings that mirror the sky.  Art from functional things we don’t usualy notice and a functional table turned into a piece of art.  Stairs of glass that climb the skyline.
