MY DAY: Fallingwater

In September 2013, as I celebrate my 49th year on earth, I will begin my year-long celebration of 49 activities. I have begun calling this festival of fun, Live Out Loud (LOL).

One of my student’s parents read through my list and was intrigued by my one item: a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural wonder in Pennsylvania, Fallingwater.

FW_FALL_01The mother said that she and her husband were both captivated by what they read about this very unique house, and agreed that they wanted to take me there to help celebrate this particular item on my list of 49 activities. Her husband flies his own plane, and she said we would just fly out of Springboro’s Wright Brothers Airport on a Saturday morning and spend the day at Fallingwater.

imagesI am so pumped. I have wanted to visit this place since 1994, when my good friend, Jim Buxton, an architect in Columbus, Ohio, first introduced me to this magical setting of this Frank Lloyd Wright design.

Nancy and Elvin Winslow have already invited me out to Kansas City so they could take me to the Harry Truman presidential sites, and then I can scoot right on up into Nebraska to see Boys & Girls Town, and visit Father Flanagan’s tomb.

My LOL list is beginning to take shape.
