today we share a wonderful pic we are calling “urban oasis”.
sometimes you have to go to the city to get a little bit of the good country.
*i never understood the city motto of chicago, “urbs in horto”, which means “city in the garden”. Though chicago has a greener appearance than most cities its still mostly concrete.
i always felt made what would make more sense as motto for chicago is ” garden in the city”. there are a quite a few garden oases sprinkled about this town. therefore “hortus in urbe”* seems more appropriate. doesnt have quite the same ring to it as the original, does it? but i still like it.
*ive chosen to translate the english into the latin myself (and i had odie help me) so its prob wrong since he only speaks greek. his name is odysseus, not ulysses, after all!!
may all our city days be touched with a bit of bucolic charm.
love odie and odie mama
