Chicago, IL USA: "If the Weather cooperates, anything is possible." Although that wasn't a Segmented Quote in the Annals of Modern Philosophies, it definitely holds true for everything that happens. It holds true also for the Studies on SDD: Seasonal Deficit Disorders. When enough Sun is not present for Creatures, whether they walk on 2 feet; 4 paws; are furry, feathered or scaled, the Effects are negatively felt.
After 3.5 Days of tumultuous Weather, Chicago has now returned to a glorious State with blue skies as far as the naked eye can see, low humidity and favorable temperatures . And, added to that Landscape will be the long awaited:
Damen & North Avenue UnVeiling of the RedBall Project,
Kurt Perschke's Brainstorm that has taken 'Sweet Home Chicago' by storm...regardless of the last-past weeekend's Antixx.
Catch (The Ball) if you can in this trendy, upscale N'Hood which to those Individuals who don't know the geography of Chicago is:
1600 North & 2000 West.
THE STROLL: It's drivable; it's bike-able; it's a long-walk; a shorter roller-blading 'over' and it's right on the North Av. CTA #72 Bus Route. In a nutshell: There's no reason why you can't 'be there.' Enculturate yourself.
As I think of the last few days when Mother Nature was not too kind to Chicagoans and Kurt's Project had to be called off due to excessive Rain & Flooding, an Idea enfolded which I will share with you next...for more national and international RedBall Events. That is:
Hold the Event (The Inflation & Deflation) inside a local Target (who is the Sponsor). What would or could be a better eye catcher than to stroll into the Store (in your area) and found blatantly in the middle of one of your favorite aisles is the 15 foot - 250 lb. Ball. It certainly would make People stop.
Kurt & his Crew would have a built-in 'Crowd' and the usual Interaction could and would happen. As a matter of fact, I would guess that for those who do not have a Cell-Phone with the Camera attachment, more Cameras would be sold (@ Target) that Day than at any given time in Target History.
And you read that Idea here first on KOOPERSMITHin, The Blog that puts the Pop into Pop Culture, whether (or weather) it calls for it or not!
