Quote Of The Dayby Brad Warbiany
The “Wild Bird” estate off Hwy 1 near Big Sur, CA.
Owings built ”Wild Bird” as a permanent home at Big Sur in 1958. In the early 1960s, he and his wife joined neighbors in organizing to limit development along the scenic highway of California Route 1. This small step into the world of political activism led to Owings further involvement in conversation and preservation campaigns.
“I got mine; the rest of you can go screw yourselves. I don’t want you encroaching on my view.”
Pretty well sums up the preservationist movement, doesn’t it?
