Hello lovely ladies, How are you all? I am usually fine but today I have to admit that I am ill in bed. I have dragged myself to the computer to write this. I tested positive for Covid on Friday night! I had a fever and I generally felt 'rough' and 'grotty'. I have no idea where I cought it, but that's neither here nor there. I am staying home and in bed until I test negative. I had a bit of a cold (runny nose) in the days before Friday so I refrained from kissing my hubby as I was afraid he'd catch my cold. Now I'm hoping he wont get it.
My postcard for today is from the USA:
Cloud Gate is a public sculpture by Indian-born British artist Anish Kapoor, that is the centerpiece of AT&T Plaza at Millennium Park in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois. Constructed between 2004 and 2006, the sculpture is nicknamed "the Bean" because of its shape, a name Kapoor initially disliked, but later grew fond of. Made up of 168 stainless steel plates welded together, its highly polished exterior has no visible seams. It measures 33 by 66 by 42 feet (10 by 20 by 13 m), and weighs 110 short tons (100 t; 98 long tons).
Kapoor's design was inspired by liquid mercury and the sculpture's surface reflects and distorts the city's skyline. Visitors are able to walk around and under Cloud Gate's 12-foot (3.7 m) high arch.
