Good Monday from Chicagoland! This is a rather odd-looking thing, isn’t it? This sculpture is called, “Cloud Gate”, otherwise affectionately known as, “The Bean” to Chicagoans.  “The Bean”, as it were, is a sculpture designed by British artist Anish Kapoor.

The  elliptical sculpture is made from seamless, highly polished stainless steel plates, which reflect Chicago’s incredible skyline and the clouds above. A 12-foot-high arch allows visitors walk ‘beneath’ “The Bean”.  You can touch the mirror-like surface and see your image reflected back.


I quite like, ‘The Bean’; in the summer there are so many ‘bean groupies’ that there is barely a space underneath to see one’s own reflection.

So I reflect to you on this Monday, a great day from Chicago, bean-style! 🙂

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
