Sunsets at Union Station, and lately

E and I walked down to Union Station to watch the sunset from the bright white top of its parking garage.

This past weekend, my mom and sister and I saw this amazing show 
at Arts on Emerson. 
It was put on by Les 7 Doigts de la Main. I was truly speechless. The set design, music, dance and acrobatics (comparable to Cirque de Soleil) all lent themselves beautifully to the depiction of various mental illnesses in a way that brought out humor, beauty, and commonality of all that can go on in the human psyche. 
It was so incredible, check out the trailer below!

1. I wish I bought the soundtrack!
2. I'm now pretty seriously mesmerized by the German wheel.
