While I was not on the top floor of this high rise, I was on the 20th floor. That’s the highest I have ever stayed overnight. I can tell you it was an interesting experience. I was able to watch the world move on and just sit in this little nook that was only big enough to hold a small round table and four chairs. This nook was a corner window from floor to ceiling. The table slid into the corner with one chair on each glass wall and the other two chairs along the edge of the kitchen area. It was very exposed and for the first time in many year, I was not afraid to be or sleep the high up.
There was not much in the way of sound that high up and I found it very fascinating to watch and wonder what people were doing. How was their day going as they moved along the street or drove their cars along the road. Then there is the church across the street. This is St. Andrew’s-Wesley, a designated heritage building in Vancouver, B.C., nestled among the 30, 40, 50, and yes 60 story buildings.
On the other side of on top, for me at least, was looking up and finding an amazing bust looking down at me. I don’t have any info on the building. The sculpture was several stories up and about halfway up the building. Reminds me of a ships figurehead. There looks like a door behind her where you might be able to step out. I wonder what she has seen form her place on top as the world moves on below.
The image is poor as a result in the height and weather, as it was snowing that day.
