One thing that has struck me this time in Sydney is the constant building of (units) apartments that is going on all over Sydney. High density living where you don't have enough room to swing a cat. Next to the Anzac bridge is a large sign proclaiming "building the Australian dream. Apartment living" FTFAJ Give me a home among the gum trees or in my case the Japanese maples.

In 1998, Bowie answered Vanity Fair’s famous Proust Questionnaire. In response to the question, ‘What is your idea of perfect happiness?’ Bowie answered ‘Reading’. And the quality he most liked in a man? ‘The ability to return books’.
Creative genius with a unique and individual musical talent.Stunned, words fail. Soo sad.
