Bruce is a retired architectural librarian who has been in the “collecting” mode since he was 12. Today we got to visit his house in Morongo – Every room is filled not only with books but with collections of treasures, including vintage vacuum cleaners, restaurant plates and cups, pictures of Joshua Trees, and of course stack and stacks (and boxes) of books that also fill a large Quonset hut in his back yard. The entire visit was so great – including the moment when Bruce revealed his fantasy that someday an apocalyptic event on some grand scale will cause the "sands of time" to burry this quonset hut. It would remain hidden from civilization for many centuries until one day far in the future it would finally be uncovered re-introducing modern architecture to a whole new civilization.
