Chicago School, 1893

Chicago ~ April 22, 2005

I don't know if it would be easier to learn in a school like this, but I'll bet it would be a more inspirational way to start the day than the ugly Bauhaus-looking school I attended in Southern California. I think I would imagine that it was a museum with all kinds of esoteric information inside rather than the characterless and forbidding facade of my school that made me want to run away and retrieve my sense of self.

Actually, although as a child I thought the building formidable, it also provided a warm secure feeling like a strong protective father.

Love the building's old architecture.

P.S. I love the Eastern Sierra. One of my favorite area is Bishop, lots of lakes and mountains.

This building speaks of wisdom. I would like to see the school you went to, though, because usually I like Bauhaus design.
