Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: architecture

While getting out yesterday to enjoy the great weather… and still looking for new “destinations” while the Lakefront is closed… I pedaled north and spent some time “self-isolating” at a beautiful old cemetery. Not a lot of people moving around there… easy to stay safe & to myself.

Though not into the “religion” of it all… I am intrigued by the architecture, the design, the craftsmanship, the names & dates, the rituals … and the oddness of actually “enjoying” some quiet time visiting a cemetery?!

Coincidentally, when I tutored first grade for ten years during “my corporate days”… I taught at the John B. Murphy School in Chicago! And here he is!!!

And here’s the COMISKEY mausoleum… as in Comiskey Park where the Chicago White Sox still play baseball. Sure, it might be called something else now, but it will always be Comiskey Park to me!
