Sydney – Part 2 continued :-)

It looks like it has taken 2 months instead of 2 weeks to get back to this. A very brief update is that I am in Yuma, AZ at home and John is in a Healthcare Rehab center in Phoenix, AZ 3 hours north of home. Due to the virus shut down everywhere, I am not able to be with him, either in Phoenix or Yuma. John had two emergency brain surgeries, can’t walk, can’t swallow (has a feeding tube implanted in his stomach), has difficulty talking and is receiving physical, occupational and speech therapy everyday. Details will follow in the epilogue.   Some of you have received bits and pieces of this info and some no info at all.  But today is EASTER and above all a day of Hope.  All of us experience life’s traumas, trials, and tragedies, sometimes with trepidation but always with Triumph. Happy Easter.

I agree 😉

Architecture is the triumph of human imagination over materials, methods, and men, to put man into possession of his own Earth. It is at least the geometric pattern of things, of life, of the human and social world. It is at best that magic framework of reality that we sometimes touch upon when we use the word order.        ~          Frank Lloyd Wright

Though the domed roof ‘shells’ appear uniformly white from a distance, they actually feature a subtle chevron pattern composed of 1,056,006 tiles in two colors: glossy white and matte cream. American architect Louis Kahn would make the most enduring comment about the luminous effect of the tiles: “The sun did not know how beautiful its light was, until it was reflected off this building.”  
While enjoying beautiful Opera dinner music…
It appeared that ‘she’ wanted to join us in the dining room!
Tight squeeze for this big one. Our ship was smaller and able to sail under the Harbor Bridge.

The Anzac bridge was given its current name on Remembrance Day in 1998 to honor the memory of the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (known as Anzacs) who served in World War I. An Australian flag flies atop the eastern pylon and a New Zealand Flag flies atop the western pylon. (I really wanted a picture of the tug!)
