Research Buckminster Fuller and his Dymaxion home. It was a rotating house that rotated to use the wind for it's maximum for ventilation. One of the last of them is at the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan. One difference I see between the two is that I think Bucky's home was suspended from the central column. Bucky is famous for the geodesic dome and the Bucky ball that scientist have just succeeded in making.

Life is a collection of stories we old people tell and hope a few will listen and carry them into the future.

There is a story to everything we have, everyone we have met and everything we have done or we will do or dream about doing.

We sometimes ride to forget, but hopefully we never forget to ride.

Maybe the Jody Foster spin.
