Quondam's 28th Year       Stephen Lauf

After reading "Postmodern or Posthistoire?" it seems that the notion of posthistory coincides with the hyperactive assimilating imagination over the better part of the next two centuries.
Historical analysis within a space-time continuum is more ongoing productivity and less end-product.
"architectures in the space-time continuum"
architectural history in the space-time continuum
I'm beginning to wonder which is more immovable, a building or an opinion.
...excerpt from the cover notes of Prehistoric Architecture in the Eastern United States:
"It is the first overview of prehistoric earth architecture in the Eastern United States, from about 2200 BC to AD 1500, and presents 82 sites which provide examples of how, thousands of years before Columbus, aboriginal architects used earth to shape their environments and landscapes from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico and from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Plains."
...the formations of the earth architecture(s) is most times very geometric, often with groupings of stunted pyramidal mounds, and the arrangements sometimes resemble the patterns one associates with crop circles.

I spent a lot of the Summer of '72 at Boulevard Pools.
Jim, Bob, John and I would "thumb it" (hitch-hike) up the Roosevelt Boulevard--I think our rolled-up-towels-in-hand got us most of the rides, seeing how we were fine young teenagers on our way to an afternoon of swimming and diving and flirting. For sure the heyday was long gone, but no doubt the best "50 cent" I spent back in those days. Now it seems very lost urban America.
We always hung out on the lawn towards the west end of the 7' olympic pool. I actually found two 4-leaf and one 5-leaf clover there; it was like a little clover mutation spot.
