Chicago ComicCon & Misc Chicago Photos

I have finally gotten through and posted our photos from last weekend’s ComicCon in Chicago. It just a small selection of the best photos (and not surprisingly, a bit James Marsters-centric, though I tried to keep the album balanced and varied.)

As I was posting this latest foray to Chicago, I realized with complete surprise that somehow I have not posted a single photo of Chicago until now. Yet I spent an entire semester living in the Windy City in 2002 and still make it back almost every year. So I have also posted two more albums for your viewing enjoyment: an early spring trip in 2008 and the weekend trip in April 2009 with my theater colleagues to see the Broadway musical RENT.

So enjoy one of my favorite cities through the window of my camera.


About chronictraveler

Chronic Traveler starts as a dream, one that I thought I had lost, but that has slowly changed into a mission to realize and live that dream every day. In December 2007 I became seriously ill and the doctors did not know what was causing my illness. I had to stop teaching as my life tumbled into a never-ending nightmare of doctors, hospitals and tests. Finally, in May 2008 I was diagnosed with a chronic condition - fibromyalgia. I was only 26 years old at the time. I have had to give up teaching, and now work part-time at a performing arts center as I learn how to manage my condition and improve my quality of life. What helped me through the months of uncertainty and sickness, and continues to inspire me, was a new focus on what truly mattered to me: family, friends, gardening, the arts, and especially travel. I have always fed my soul by traveling, ever since I first stepped off the plane at age 16 in Kathmandu, Nepal to help with an orphanage's building project. Meeting new people and experiencing how they live and how they view the world infuses my life with a richness I was so afraid I would lose when the doctor first said, "You have fibromyalgia". This blog is my story, as I begin to forge a new path. I am embracing my life as it is, with the fibromyalgia pain and fatigue, and learning to do what I love regardless. It may mean I have to go slower and take more naps or breaks! But I am determined to learn how to travel and experience the world, and hopefully what I learn will help others like me who believe their medical condition stands in the way of their travel dreams.

    I have a photo of you meeting James Marsters. Do you want me to send you a copy? Total coincidence! LOL! And I found you via the “Don’t Kill Spike” site which showed up on my blog. LOL!
