Another Place

Another place

Yesterday (Saturday) I left Breckenridge at around 5 am to drive to a place north of Fort Collins for the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Sierra Club Executive Committee quarterly meeting. Nice bunch of folks aged from 20 to 90 and all keenly sensitive to environmental issues.

The location was a meeting place on a small pond named Primrose Studio. It was given to the City of Fort Collins by the Udall family (not the political family) to provide a quiet and idyllic setting for meetings and contemplation. Dorothy was an artist and the building is a gallery of her works including a very nice watercolor hanging above the toilet in the men's room. Too bad the women will never see that one. Here is their web site so you can see for yourself. http://www.fcgov.com/naturalareas/primrose.php

We have had meetings in Girl Scout buildings, Banks, Senior Centers, Unitarian churches and in downtown Denver office buildings. I think they were all nice but this one was nicer.

After living my life as it has been I I have learned to prefer quiet. I did a personality test recently and I was amazed at how much I lust after quiet. Maybe it is just my old eardrums getting tired of vibrating. g
