December 10, 2017, Walker, AZ-
I attended a Christmas gathering at the home of a senior Red Cross volunteer, this afternoon, in this small forest community, ten miles southeast of Prescott. It was just a relaxing time for volunteers to recap the year and share stories of their various deployments, across the South, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and California. After a couple of hours had passed, with goodly amounts of food and drink, and people began to head out, the host brought out a Jenga set.
This inspired these thoughts:
How sturdy is a house of loose blocks?
How many pieces can be removed, and from which part of the structure, before the edifice comes tumbling down?
Is there careful planning, as to demolition?
If so, what plans are there for something to take its place?
How high can such a structure be?
Does it really matter who lives in it, or even who owns it?
A lot of life is like Jenga.
