Day 1, Entry #2 with Craig Wedderspoon discussing the Bryce Hospital controversy and the University of Alabama.
I thought we were going to be talking about art and connectivity, but apparently not so much. With that in mind, here is my response: I am not qualified, nor informed enough to comment on our current mental health policy. It is an issue towards which tremendous attention, consideration, and financial commitment should be dedicated…and I wish those who can actually be a part of such activity the most sincere of all my concerns the very best in progressive accomplishment.
So, I thought the original topic was the Bryce property. Again, I thought we were going to talk about art. UA is growing like a weed, and I am excited. Our local community is facing drastic re-evaluation as city code, property management, rite-of-way, and all the other issues that are faced with rebuilding community are addressed in day-to-day progression of construction. The Bryce property, as is my understanding, is now UA property. From all I have heard, the plans call for a massive part of that property to be dedicated to fine and performing arts centers. Who knows when any of this will happen, the awesome part is that it is happening. The mental health issue is beyond my knowledge. The visual art issue is only what makes me face every day with inspiration, motivation, and curiosity.
