There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension
as space and timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of a man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area we call the Thunder Bay Waterfront Development Project. – inspired by Rod Serling
Friday was Imagination Day in the City of Thunder Bay.
The Waterfront Development Office gave the Thunder Bay media a guided tour of the new buildings that will be open to the public sometime in the future. Nice public relations. Keep the project front and centre in peoples minds.
The problem is that the inside of the buildings are nowhere close to being finished.
The buildings are only shells right now. No finished walls to speak of. No finished floors. No finished ceilings. No windows. No doors. No lights. No…….anything. Lots of space. Read the complete Tbnewswatch article Taking Shape for details.
The people are being asked to “imagine” what things are going to be like. Imagine the colour of the walls covered with local art. Imagine the patterns of the floor tiles. Imagine the view from the windows, if there were windows installed. Breathtaking I am sure. At least I imagine it will be breathtaking.
The view out of the windows facing the back/front of other buildings might not be as breathtaking or maybe it will. Use your imagination. If Faith Hill happened to be walking passed, then just maybe it would be breathtaking also. It would be in my imagined Baggage Building. I can’t speak for what your imagined building.
Music. There would be music playing in the background. Soothing. Relaxing.
There would be that new building smell. You know. No urine odour.
There would be birds and butterflies. Flowers. Lots and lots of flowers. And a waterfall. A two storey high waterfall that would be the site of the twice daily cliff diving demonstration.
I think Dugmore and Company might be on to something here. Why bother finishing these buildings? I am sure that the final product will pale in comparison to the imagined buildings created in the minds of the taxpayers.
As Katherine Dugmore says………
