My freshman English classes have been in mythology mode, and I'm shocked at how much I'm enjoying the experience. I never taught mythology before, but I'm apparently getting inspired by it. I hope the sentiment is similar for my students! A great connection between myths and my passion for Chicago history appeared this morning, and I felt the need to write about it.
Whenever I come up with an essay or story about Chicago, I'll be copying it onto the "Essays and Stories" section of the website. With that said, I hope you check out today's piece called "Good Morning, Aurora!" (http://www.ghesslaumagrady.com/essays--stories/good-morning-aurora.)
