The Living Roof

At The California Academy of Sciences

"Stop and smell the wildflowers during a visit to the Academy's living roof, a 2.5-acre expanse of native California plants. The museum's most iconic green building feature, the roof provides superior insulation, prevents stormwater runoff, reduces the urban heat island effect, and creates a new habitat for native birds, butterflies, and other local wildlife."

My uncle and other companions at the Academy noticed that the living roof had an uncanny resemblance to another fantastic agricultural landscape.... Teletubby Island. And I have to say, it is an eerie topographical synonym.

....says...'A Distant Relative Will Phone You Soon'....

...the way Rice felt while listening.

"But Rice, on the spot, gave Johnson carte blanche to hire the Alberses—and immediately. He made the decision not because he knew anything of them or because Black Mountain was so desperate that he had to pick names out of the hat. Rather, it was the way Johnson had looked when he talked about Albers—and the way Rice felt while listening. 'If you ever meet anybody who has seen a great teacher in action,' Rice explained years later, 'something happens as soon as you mention his name. Something happens to the person that's talking to the person who's talking about him. You see a vision.' It was one of the shrewdest intuitions, perhaps the key decision in Black Mountain's early years."

Found Sculpture, Cat Sleeping in the Sun

slack licorice, soft dusty, flop cuddled
in a meadow somewhere, sun warming, squinting
blue ceiling, deep, endless
veils and pillows, soft and swaddle
soft earth, whispering low
caravan of friends trafficking
endlessness, forever, and infinity

The why...

... It's best not to leave your bike locked up on the street forever...

Because if it doesn't get stripped for parts... It's bound to end up
as somebody's public art project.
