today ‘the lake house’ was on cable and i was teary all the way through it. not because of the story (which, admittedly, did make me cry the first time i saw it) but because it made me ache for chicago. the el, the metra, daley plaza, the lake, the architecture, lake shore drive…sigh. i miss my home.
