My beloved friend Suzanne, age 66, died July 3rd 2016 ~ 27 Sivan 5776.
A hugely bright shining light, in person now dimmed, yet still shining.
Remembering bits'n pieces of Suzanne's amazing life, I recall the following:
She spent a summer working in Paolo Soleri's village Arcosanti, Arizona.
He began construction in 1970, to demonstrate how urban conditions could be improved while minimizing the destructive impact on the earth. He taught and influenced generations of architects and urban designers who studied and worked with him there to build the proposed 'town.’
Suzanne traveled to Alaska with Alan in 1976-1980.
Went to Japan, Tunisia, Indonesia, Nepal.
Loved films at LACMA, sat on floor watching intently.
Studied in architecture school.
