High on my list of projects to fund:
- Bridge Columbia
- Blessings in a Backpack
- Bridges to Housing Stability
- A certain local baker's dream for a better kitchen in Oakland Mills
- Merriweather Park in Symphony Woods
It must have taken a lot of money and a lot of political will to bring the Kennedy Center into being. I thought a lot last night how it is hard to get people in positions of power to agree on anything these days. A dream project from one side of the aisle is the subject of derision from the other. I wonder if the Kennedy Center could get built today.
I don't know if you remember, but long-term plans for Merriweather Park in Symphony Woods include an Arts Village. It's a long way off but if I won the Powerball you can be sure it would be a high priority for me. Columbia and Howard County are bursting with performing arts groups and yet we have quite a limited number of performance venues. What a thrill it would be for me to help bring that Arts Village into existence.
A two-dollar dream doesn't get you very far. I'm quite clear on how unlikely a Powerball win would be. It's still deliciously tantalizing, though. As to my personal splurge?
I'd like a treehouse.
