It was a welcome surprise to find Minnie greeting me this morning
as I stopped along the lake to admire the icicles.
Looks like she’s been hanging out there for awhile?!!!

Wonderful colors & energy racing across the bricks! Another wonderful graffiti mural by Hebru Brantley… this one fittingly on the side of the Nike Store in Bucktown.
