My Weather Vane...Soon to Disappear

A building is going up at Fifth and Colorado. People are always asking me about things which block our view or will in the future. I'm most sad about the giant Texas flag that is actually pretty far away in the Texas State Cemetery east of IH35. I like seeing it there tells me which way the wind blows. Since we are only on the tenth floor it doesn't take much height in a nearby building to block something from our view.

Catching Up

When Jackie toured the Austin American-Statesman plant she didn't know if this guy was catching up on the news or doing quality control. There do seem to be some discards in front of him.

Big pour

The equipment being used to pour concrete at the new building south of us presented an otherworldly sight the other night.

Dead Tree Journalism

We get three daily newspapers. Two are produced all or in part at the Austin American-Statesman plant on South Congress beside Lady Bird Lake. Our friend Jackie recently took a tour. This shows a bundle of papers hurrying along the conveyor belt.

It's Beginning to Look Like a Neighborhood

This street at Seaholm looks welcoming but there is still a lot of construction going on. Taken by my friend Jackie a few weeks ago.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Sand mandala completion on April 16. It was soon swept away. Art is ephemeral. Buddist Monks were in City Hall this month doing this project.

More landscaping.

Lots of workers were busily planting more bushes outside the burgeoning Seaholm plant development.
