An old photo shows paint samples during the decorating project.
Office hours, relocated from an ice cream place to Connie's Donuts. After a little walk I got in line and spoke to Laurie Jinkins. I mentioned my comment at the book discussion, that I had read A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway when I was a page at McCormick Library so long ago, and from some characteristics of the writing in Hunger, I wondered if Roxane Gay was influenced by the work of Gertrude Stein.

about influences at the reading last night at Lincoln High School. I had not been able to register until the seats had all been taken. Laurie Jinkins said the event went very well, all the seats had been taken, only a few were left. The response to the author and her perfomance was wonderful, and it was a good event.
Another citizen awaited at the small round tables, and across the street my bus arrived almost as soon as I reached the stop. On to the volunteer job at PLU Archives.

During many months at the building I live in, residents have become more portable tenants to prepare for building remodel plans, and everyone has boxed things up. As July came near, I found the building’s gathering area cleared of things, only to await redecoration for a time. Others joined in with me to also seize the day and use the space as an art studio. Although their other plans took priority, the small Fourth of July Art Show materialized. So, yesterday I set up the Art Show ahead of the festivity of its opening morning today... That was my blog entry for the First Annual Art Show at the building where I live, held last year on the Fourth of July.
This year half a dozen people participated in the Second Annual Art Show. I brought photographs again. This year there were quilts, paintings, wood craft, painted ceramics and more.

The Peninsula Park at Point Defiance which is looking for a name could feature one of the metal sculptures like the Top of the Ocean Memorial, but the new sculpture could show the whole Ruston Way Old Town Industrial Complex. My first home was above the Dickman Mill in Old Town. The size and level of destruction of the harvesting of natural resources in this area is hardly apparent to people who see it today. It cries out for an explanation that is true and factual. The name I submitted is: Old Town / Ruston Way Industrial History Park -
