Close to The Edge of the World (see my blog post 27.9),
a Tower is growing.
It’s rising above my own horizon now; as I feared it would. This photo was taken through my window the other day. If I sit at the kitchen table, it’s out of view and I can pretend it’s not there. But the illusion goes away as soon as I take one or two steps to the right… :)
Luckily, I think they have almost reached the top now.
For while at least, it will be the highest building in town.
Can’t help it, I’ve come to (jokingly) think of it as the Tower of Babel…
“Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves ” (Genesis 11:4)
This is what it’s supposed to look like when it’s finished.
(Obviously not my own photo!)
Linking to Weekend Reflections
I’m afraid I still cannot see or enter any links at either Skywatch Friday or Friday My Town Shoot Out. (It was the same thing last week.) If anyone has a plausible explanation, please share it. (I suspect something to do with Google+. Which I’m not using.)
