Chicago has beaches. It really is the perfect city. And obviously, while swimming in Lake Michigan, I naturally hummed this to myself.
Not sure I'd try to swim across it though, you can't see the other side.
This is a beautiful live recording, by the way. Thinking of Sufjan live always makes me smile, since I can't help but remember one of the best things my friend Jess has ever sighed post show, "I want to have his little star-people babies..."
We all do.
