Adrienne Rewi Online: Postcards From Memory - Christchurch As it Used to Be

Adrienne Rewi Online: Postcards From Memory - Christchurch As it Used to Be

While we celebrate Container City, I can also relate to this article from Adrienne... do go and read it.
Felt so good to see some of these buildings in their previous and glorious state... Somehow the reality of the loss is getting harder with each month as more spaces appear; as more land decisions are made. I want to play ostrich and pretend it isn't happening, but the evidence is everywhere and reality has to be faced, again and again.
Grief takes time.

  1. Hi Fi. News of the need to demolish part of the cathedral has even reached the UK.
    The length of time all these changes are going on for isn't going to make it any easier either.
