On the way back, we stopped at our favourite coffee shop, which overlooks the construction site for the Bow. The company that is building the Bow is rumoured to be having financing problems, and work is currently stopped. There is much speculation about whether or not the work stoppage is just a seasonal thing. When finished, the Bow will be the tallest office tower in Canada (outside Toronto). If the deal falls through, it will be the biggest hole in the ground in Canada.
I'm re-reading the Autobiography of John Cowper Powys. I last read it in 1972, and I don't remember much from that reading. Just a few incidents and a few lines of dialogue, and a general impression of his personality and career. I'm enjoying it more the second time around, perhaps in part because I am now near the age he was when he wrote it.
