My concern is, given a month, that the board members will then have time to marshal their defenses, and thus find reasons why the building can’t be located on the VCRS property.
Me, I have a long-term item on my wish list and two long-range plans. I of course want a bookmobile. I tell people this and they laugh. They just don’t see how this fits in with the scheme of things. I also want to have a sign that says “Home of Bright Lights Book Project” at the entrance to Palmer. I also want to give the Mat-Su College commencement address. This neighbor speculated that this project has the potential to become bigger than Amazon. I suspect that in time, the new building will be lacking in space, and yes, I’ll have to get another grant, one for a warehouse.
This makes me think of the Crazy Horse sculpture, located in South Dakota. It’s now a multi-generational monument of Crazy Horse and his horse. The horses’ nostril is so large that a man can stand inside of it. I figure that if the creator can create something like this, then I can keep this book project going.
The founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, went into outer space and is sending other people out there. I would like to send books into outer space. Maybe I can get a National Science Foundation Grant and study the effects of weightlessness on classics versus non-classic books. Then the books might be left behind for aliens.
I’m not sure why I have to wait on moving forward on the building project. Thinking about it actually pisses me off, since I had no say in the matter. Well, in the meantime, books are rolling into VCRS and rolling out.
