July 9 (1976, 1988, 2005)
Matters of Substance

7/9/76 ~ early morning in tim's house. tim fagan who is up yonder in washington rambling about in his model A mail truck… i've stayed here a couple of nights instead of wren shack so that i could listen to music and have my own space. ... i really must get my cabin built and thus i must get my cabin designed. and quite in my style i have a conflict therein: whether to try to bring to birth my age-old dream of an octagonal house, a basically circular one room cabin with sleeping loft; or to opt for the sheer simplicity of a gable-roof rectangular 16.5' x 20' one room cabin with sleeping loft. or to attempt a synthesis, compromise. maybe build a house in the shape of a flaming gazelle.”

[Russell Towle's journal]

7/9/88 morning, of a Saturday, I'm about to head for Ed's and set some 6 x 6, then? Yesterday, fired off a letter to J. Roubique, Truckee District Ranger, re logging operations in Castle Valley.

Weather: hot.

Book in hand: Ball and Coxeter's Mathematical Recreations and Essays.

Matters of substance: saw the wonderful Mariko, on Fourth of July weekend; went to Lovers Leap with Bill Newsom and Co., we flew balsa gliders to truly great effect.”
