“What you end up remembering isn’t always the same as what you have witnessed.”
― Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending
Mom and Dad’s backdrop in this picture is Christchurch Cathedral (Christchurch, New Zealand). This was taken about this time in 1993. Exactly 2 decades ago, how time flies! Feeling nostalgic remembering wonderful memories 🙂
after all, had served the people in the area for so long.
The church is apparently engaged in an on-going court battle fighting to have the Cathedral “saved”; had put forward three proposals: 1.to restore the original structure, 2. rebuild it in a traditional theme, or 3. replace it with a modern design. I’d vote for proposal 1 and 2 🙂
Those who have visited this place, I’m sure, are equally sentimental hearing this news.
