My farewell-for-now column:
I distinctly remember a textbook titled "Time to Wonder" that I used in elementary school. When I was a child, the title meant very little because both time and wonder seemed infinite to me.

The power of dance--
When Pierre Lockett was growing up in 1960s Mobile, Ala., the only African-American he'd ever seen dance professionally was a black guy who had performed with the June Taylor Dancers on national television.

The Chicago taping of "+Antiques Roadshow" attracted 5,000 people toting knickknacks, heirlooms and garage sale finds – and ME with a recorder. My newest +Chicago Tribune piece is a look behind the scenes and at the “Roadshow” journey of two locals. Please read and share!
They carried paintings and prints, lugged dolls and jewelry.

Today's column on values and violence:
I once interviewed this guy who was gruff and surly, and although he might have appeared to be a thug, he wasn't. He was smart and insightful, particularly in the way he thought about young street toughs and their lack of values.

Books are just so magical! Today's column:
A few years ago, Jeff Tangel read a story about an elderly man in Wisconsin who built a model of a one-room schoolhouse as a tribute to his mother, a teacher who had loved books. The man placed the model on a wooden pedestal — which made it resemble an oversize birdhouse — and filled it with books.

It's not often that I get to experience a story from its beginning to its end. The exception is the rags-to-riches tale of a pit bull named Sweetie Grace.

My Sunday story on a middle-class West Side enclave where inerracial and gay couples have lived for decades:
When Larry Hallock and his partner decided to move from Chicago's vibrant Lakeview neighborhood, they never imagined they would consider living in the Austin community on the city's beleaguered West...

Cool neighborhood! I really wish they were all like this. Hopefully, someday the rest of the world, or at least the city, will catch up.

My conversation on race, skyscrapers and fiction:
In its early years, the skyscraper was mesmerizing in the way it shifted our perspective and challenged us to re-conceptualize the world. It said: You recognize the view near the ground, now try it from the 10th floor, the 15th floor and beyond.
