Seems like my time these last 7 weeks has been consumed with reading, reading, and more reading. (This is what happens when one absent mindedly over-commits to blog about an insane number of books within a short period of time.) In need of a break, I did something fun. On a beautiful, sunny afternoon in Chicago, I enjoyed a treat with a few friends: Cirque Shanghai. If you have never seen Cirque Shanghai, you must! It’s an hour and ten minutes of jam packed, high energy, off-the-wall-crazy stunts, tumbles and death-defying tricks. Oh, what fun! For those in the Chicago area, Cirque Shanghai is running through Labor Day at Navy Pier.
