Opportunity arises to get some work done at this Chicago Starbucks.
Whether I work from my hotel room at The Ritz-Carlton or a local coffee shop, it feels refreshing to be in the windy city. Everywhere I look, people are plugged in at this Rush Street Starbucks.
They stare at their phones with headphones on.
All the while, laptops open directly in from of them. I find myself judging them.
I take in all that surrounds me, and snap a few photos with my Leica M6 (I love film). The ink smears the page as I write in my journal. Darn left-handers!
I can't judge the people who occupy this Chicago Starbucks.
Because sometimes this is me, just NOT this time. I find the most inspiration when I unplug and sit with a pen and paper. On the other hand, if work needs to get done, it's energizing to get out of my home office once in a while. Local coffee shops are the place of preference for me. As a result, I can't judge these people. Maybe they're working, maybe not. It's none of my business. As I sit in this Starbucks, I turn inward and write.
