80 SEPTEMBER 4, 2017

A TIME FOR REFLECTION. AT MOST, 20 YEARS LEFT, IF I AM LUCKY WITH MODERN LIVING AND PARTS..

I HAVE CHARGED THROUGH LIFE BY TURNING OUT THE NEXT DESIGN. BRAIN WASHING STUDENTS , ENJOYING MY FAMILY, AND INTERACTING WITH NUMEROUS FRIENDS.

I TAKE THE LINE OF LEAST RESISTANCE AND MOVE TO THE NEXT PROJECT. IT IS WHAT I AM BEST AT. I DO NOT DO WELL PROMOTING MYSELF, MAKING CONTACTS, AND CONVINCING MARGINAL HUMANITY THE VALUE OF MY DESIGNS ALL OF WHICH IS THE MAJOR PART OF ARCHITECTURE TO BUILD REALITY.

THE PROJECTS I HAVE NOW ARE BUILDABLE SCALE. THE SIGNIFICANT URBAN PLANNING IDEAS WAITING FOR POSTERITY.

THE PRESENT ARCHITECTURAL AND URBAN PLANNING PROFESSION PRODUCING NUMEROUS QUALITY DESIGNS THAT ARE SENSUOUS AND GREEN , BUT LACKING THE UNIVERSAL INFRASTRUCTURE TO MAKE THEM WORK . THE TECHNOLOGY CHANGING SO FAST THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLAN FOR, THUS CREATING CONFUSION.

THERE IS A LACK OF BEING CLOSE TO NATURE AND NUTURING OUR ANIMAL INSTINCTS. A SOCIETY FREE OF DUST AND DIRT, FAR FROM THE JUNGLE, WITH BUFFED FLOORS, SURFACES, AND MINDS.

I WAS FORTUNATE TO BE RAISED IN A SINGLE PHONE HOME, WITH A FAMILY STATION WAGON , A RADIO, START UP TV, AND A LARGE PEPPER TREE TO CLIMB ON TO REACH THE ROOF.
.
MY WHEELS A BIKE. THERE WAS STABILITY THAT ENCOURAGED INNOVATION AND BEING OUTSIDE IN NATURE.

WORLD WAR II WAS ABOUT COMING TOGETHER TO FIGHT THE ENEMY WITH ALL THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE. MY FAMILY, INCLUDING MYSELF AND FRIENDS WERE TOTALLY INVOLVED IN THE MOVEMENT OF URBAN FARMS, RECYCLING AND CUTTING BACK ON NECESSARY NEEDS FOR THE WAR EFFORT. RABBITS AND CHICKENS IN THE BACK YARD.

DROP DRILLS OF DUCKING UNDER MY DESK IN GRAMMAR SCHOOL WAS STANDARD PROCEDURE FOR ATOMIC BOMB THREAT.

GAS WAS 18 CENTS PER GALLON FOR MY ORANGE CHEVY COUPE IN HIGH SCHOOL.

NOW WITH ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE AND INNOVATIONS AFFECTING SOCIAL PATTERNS THERE IS A HUGE CALLENGE FOR OUR DESTRUCTIVE SOCIETY .

IT IS DOUBTFUL IF WE CAN GET IT TOGETHER TO SAVE OUR SPIECIES .

I PROGRAMMED TO KEEP TRYING.

MY HEALTH THE BEST IT HAS BEEN IN THE LAST 15 YEARS. I STILL CAN DANCE. I ATTRIBUTE THAT TO NOT SMOKING NOR DRINKING COFFEE AND CHOPPING OFF A COUPLE OF INFECTED TOES. MY ADULT KIDS ALL DOING WELL AND THE GRANDCHILDREN SUPER COOL.

I NEED A BOOK!!! HUMANITY NEEDS MY BOOK!!! AND POSTERITY NEEDS MY BOOK!!! smallatlarge.com shows the material, BUT DOES NOT SPREAD THE WORD.

A RECENT ARCHITECTURAL SHOW IN MANHATTAN ABOUT HISTORICAL PROPOSALS FOR NEW YORK DID NOT INCLUDE MY JUNGLE THEATER AND DOWNTOWN TROPISPHERE. ALTHOUGH MOST OF MY WORK CAN BE VIEWED ON MY 100 PLUS BLOGS. I AM STILL NOT IN THE LOOP. LOS ANGELES HAD SOMETHING SIMILAR ABOUT PROPOSALS OF THE PAST, AND THE BIOMORPHIC BIOSPHERE , GREEN MACHINE AND TURFTOWN WERE NOT INCLUDED.

NOWDAYS, THE STUDENTS JUMP UP AND DOWN WITH ENTHUSIASM AT MY LECTURES, THE PROFESSORS PERPLEXED? IT IS ABOUT BEING THE MAVERICK OUTSIDER ARCHITECT THAT IS ALIVE AND EXCITED ABOUT BANGING OUT INNOVATIVE DESIGNS YEAR AFTER YEAR.

YOUNG AT HEART IS THE MOTIVATOR.

LOVE,

GLEN
