As a teacher, I am incredibly lucky to have a job that, at times, allows me to fill my my cup with soulfully imbued experiences. On Tuesday, I was added, at the last minute, as a chaperone for the 7th grade field trip to the Chicago Shakespeare Repertory (located on the lakefront at Navy Pier). After the play, I explored the desolate Navy Pier and came upon the slowly heaving ice. I did not have my my good camera. The clips in the link below were shot (at Navy Pier and Montrose Harbor) with my iPhone as experimentation and b-roll for my doc, Paddling in Spite of the Ordinary.
