The following video starts outside Mt Carroll, Illinois.
There's a sign along Hwy 78 for a covered bridge,
which you see first.

Then, you're at
Campbell Center For Historic Preservation

The first building you see is the Sawyer House.
I understand, back in the day, that
Aldous Huxley gave a talk there.
And if you listen closely,
you might even hear
a bird or 2.

On Broadway, near Belmont in Chicago
is our favorite Sushi bar, and further
up the loop is Metropolis coffee,
where they know enough to put an
espresso con panna,
not in a latte cup.

You know I'm nutty for covered bridges, sushi and coffee. A perfect post.

Ah, Huxley knew where to speak! The Robert Louis Stevenson quote is lovely, and the video was beautiful. Excellent fusion here of poem, nature, country setting, the the unifying motif of....what else?!
