Consolation on parting

I took this picture just after seeing my sister off at the Jackson stop of the Blue Line.  After a delightful if too brief visit, she was bound for O’Hare and a flight back to her family in the Twin Cities.  We see one another a few times a year.  It was a terrible letdown to part with her.

The beauty of the city could scarcely assuage me, though its heavens were thoughtfully raining sympathetic tears.
