A young"ish" Buckminster Fuller and a flexible skin geodesic dome about the time he taught at Black Mountain College!

Please come over and see my comments and photos on my other blog "When I Was 69." And sometimes I have some ancestry information on the blog "Three Family Trees."

At the Old Depot of Black Mountain NC

 


These top two shelves still have mainly my pottery on them.


I like the corner cupboard display. 

I renewed my membership with the volunteer who was working there yesterday afternoon.

Then I went grocery shopping.

And then that evening, we heard that Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died. I wrote of how much I admired her on Facebook. And for all the posts that others put out, I wrote a few comments. I'm sad, and also angry at the prospect of the government appointing her replacement before the election. And then  I talked for an hour and a half with my son and his wife, who were feeling really sad and crying. I was close to it, but not as hopeless as they felt. I guess I have faith in a spiritual foundation, which they may not have...and I have a church community which includes many justice grass-roots workers.

Out of all our talking, I stressed the importance of their choosing just 3 issues of our current lives to focus upon, and to put their energies toward the needs of those 3 issues, to have a better chance of making their efforts pay off, and to not feel scattered by so many things happening. I thank my friend Byron Ballard for posing that method of being more effective, as well as more grounded.
