“Bean” looking for a good book?

This is Cloud Gate in Chicago, affectionately known as “the bean” by Chicagoans.  I’ve always wondered what the sculptor thinks about this… 🙂  We spent a beautiful day-before-Thanksgiving downtown and were thankful for lovely weather.  I heard a piece on Chicago Public Radio a few weeks ago about how they clean the bean.  Fascinating.  I would never have thought that it needed to be cleaned, but I guess the rain and snow doesn’t wash all that bird poop off.  🙂

The Bean has a brief cameo in The Shattered Swan.
