Yesterday I went to my friend Leo's oath as an American citizen (many years ago he decided to stay in US with his sweetheart). Right now, I'm starting my own process to green card and -hopefully- citizenship, and it's going to be a long one. In any case, I feel very grateful that at least I have the chance.
Greeting the autumn in the Indiana Dunes, I take a moment during the hiking to just lay down and enjoy the sand and the lake' sight. I will come back during the winter to see how much this landscape changes.
Living here, whatever has been my mood, economic situation and expectations about the future (or lack of them) along the seasons, I have always found in the sight of Chicago things to admire, things that -most of times- give me new hopes.
Right about to start the prescreening of "Paranormal Activity", I am already practicing my scared faces. The last movie that really scared me was "The Blair Witch Project", mostly because I used to spend a lot of time camping, sometimes alone.
