Resting at O’Hare

Ohare International Airport in Chicago

Resting at OHare © 2010 Bo Mackison

The Seeded Earth blog is taking a short break from botanical photography as I take a short trip before I start my summer art fair schedule. For the next week or so, I’ll be sharing a few travel photos as I visit one of the few areas of the country I’ve never seen in person – the Pac Northwest. We started our trip to Seattle at Chicago’s OHare International Airport. We were energized with anticipation of the trip ahead of us, but not all travelers were quite so happy to be on the road. (Or in the skies.)

BTW, best use I’ve seen for a men’s tie in a long time – as an eye mask to block the bright lights of the airport at high noon.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Perfect use of a tie – dontcha think?? And – good luck on your summer art fair journey. I’ll be watching and learning…

  2. I wish you good weather in the northwest! A friend who lives north of Seattle just mentioned he’s getting tired of the rain.

    I’ve observed ties being used for several other salutory services such as catching BBQ sauce, mustard and catsup.

  4. This reminds me of one those pictures people post saying “Add a caption” for this. But I think it is pretty self-explanatory. So great. Thanks for the laugh.
