"merrick" Discussed on The Daily
"Today during his confirmation hearings this week. President biden's nominee for attorney. General merrick garland said that investigating the january six attack on the capital and the forces behind it would be his number one priority. My colleague mark leave of edge on how a pivotal moment in garland's career prepared him to confront domestic extremism. It's thursday february twenty fifth mark. The name merrick garland has become synonymous with to put it bluntly partisan roadkill in washington right and obama supreme court nominee who was never given so much as a hearing for that nomination correct there are certain figures in washington who become by something kind of notorious that happens to them sometimes having nothing to do with their own talents and skills and experiences merrick garland despite having a incredibly celebrated career became known in washington as the guy who was defined by the job he did not get these rain court job that president obama nominated him to in two thousand sixteen. The seat was held open. Republicans just would not having hearing for it and donald trump was elected eight months later and someone else got the job. So is that the story you were thinking about when president biden nominated garlan just a few weeks ago to become the attorney general originally. Yes when we first started. Hearing the merrick garland does potential biden. Attorney general appointee the immediate association that i think most people around washington head was. This is the guy who just got denied. This is the guy who merrick garland. There are certain people whose name becomes a verb garland. Garland's is someone who people like literally walked up to him on the sidewalk over the last few years. They recognize him and they offer condolences to him. Because it's as if someone died. It's like talking to someone who would having lunch with him somewhere downtown. Dc someone literally walked up to. The table almost hugged him because she felt so terrible about what he had gone through. This was two years after it actually happened. And i can imagine that he was pretty sick of this. After a while that was my association is seen was a lot of people's association. And then i did a little research into him and i realized actually there is a whole history. This guy has that is extremely rich and very different and extremely relevant to our living through right now. And what is that story so moore carlin's background is pretty basic. This was a juggernaut through the american meritocracy story of his class in suburban chicago. Harvard undergrad harvard law. School sumo come loud clerkship for supreme court. Judge brennan jobs in the private sector public sector lands the department of justice in the nineties. He had a very big job there. He was the deputy assistant attorney. General to then attorney general janet reno. We have a lot of assistance and deputy is going on here but this was really a lot of responsibilities and then all of a sudden he comes into work on april nineteenth nineteen ninety-five. I is in. My office is on the fourth floor of the justice department building and and i was at my desk and had a computer terminal and something happened completely shaped the trajectory of his career. I got a report entitled urgent. Report came across the computer screen. And i clicked on a opened up so he gets this urgent alert and there was a report from. I think the acting united states attorney In oklahoma saying that there have been an explosion that myrrha building saying. There's been an explosion in oklahoma city. And he actually recounted this in some detail in an oral history. He gave to the oklahoma city national museum and as he recalls it. There was not a lot of information about what had caused the explosion. Just then didn't have internet access and the justice department in those days so our method of finding out what was happening elsewhere in the country was cnn turned on cnn affiliate in oklahoma city kfor to bring you the latest headed. They're having live updates on this explosion. Happened at the building in downtown oklahoma city. This is live from. Kfor's building where the explosion occurred had. That building is devastated. Certainly people that were in the rooms on that one side of the building. It would be likely they survived started. Hearing about how many people were likely in the building and you could see from the colors screen that they're in a lot of people are dead. We don't know who did it or why. But here's what we do know at this hour. At least twenty. Six people are confirmed dead in the explosion. In addition at least two hundred are injured about three hundred more are missing merrick. Garland sees this as information sort of flying in and rumors flying in. He just sort of said to his boss. I gotta go. I wanna go there to oklahoma city. Yes so we thought we should have somebody there and from a personal point of view. I wanted to go. I mean it was a terrible scene on the television. And every everybody's because he public service wants tout and merrick garland wanted to be the department of justice's person in oklahoma city So i went home that day. Pack my bag Married and they had two very young daughters one was four and a half almost two and a half now to tell them that i was going and of course we didn't know when i was coming back. So that was her difficult What does he see once he gets there. Got there at night. It really looked like a war zone. you have to get through a ring of humvees which a national guard i guess had setup can square blocks or so around the bomb site as a crime scene and you can see broken glass all over. It could see crumbled bricks on the ground. Uc's smoldering building and you know. The extent of the catastrophe was immediately apparent. But when first time you see the building you see it not just.
"merrick" Discussed on Skullduggery
"Dialogue that we have today about over policing of black brown communities One other thing that did come up kind of consistently leaving aside. Some of the hot button political issues was antitrust And you did see kind of a through line of questioning on that and various senators attempting to kind of ask questions about google investigation to ask questions about concentration and to a certain degree right now garland is hobbled by the fact that there's no nominee for the ag for antitrust So i think. That's kind of tb de part of his agenda and pretty important one that we still are going to have to wait and see what's going to happen. So i did think that there was one stumble towards the end that could give a few republicans hook to oppose his nomination on. and it's win hawley. That great legal mind Asked him about prosecuting. People who cross the border illegally. Do you believe that illegal. Entry at america's borders should remain a crime. Well i thought about that question I just haven't thought about that question. I i think you know. The president has made clear that we are a country of with the borders and with the concern about national security. I don't know of proposal to decriminalize but still make it unlawful to enter. I just don't know the answer to that question. I haven't thought about it victoria. Would you make of that response. It wasn't the best answer was it wasn't short. Answer is it is it is a crime. It's a crime and for republicans who decry the you know. Democrats for secretly favoring open borders and not always not so secretly sometimes pretty openly. I you know. I would have thought he would have thought about an answer to that goal. I also i also would have thought his confirmation team. I would have prepared him for a question like that to me that it's a fairly obvious one but you know we're sitting here on the cheap seats so i guess that's i mean he did he did say that The the president has made clear that we're a nation with borders. So i think it's it's pretty clear that he's he's not embracing any sort of like open borders approach to but if you're not going to prosecute people who violate the law and enter the country illegally. Isn't that effectively open borders. Well i guess it's all to a certain degree at an issue of priorities. whether or not you've criminally prosecute every single person who crosses the border without papers throw them in prison versus whether or not you focused on a select group of of people. So it's all about priorities. And i think that would have probably been a more effective answer than than the kind of the the little bit of a word salad that he kind of managed to let out an answer to that question. Suga rehabilitate himself. I'm sure his The people who were prepping him are talking to right now about how to fix that answer by the way he did use the limited resources response when he got asked by cory booker in a different round about marijuana enforcement and whether they doj under a garland. Justice department will prosecute marijuana violators in states. Where it's already legal which is fast becoming a majority of the country. Given california's it's it's all legal in garland said is it does not seem to me to be a useful use of limited resources to be pursuing prosecutions and states. That have legalized. It's not quite a hey advocating full legalisation. He's not there yet. But i don't think biden is quite there yet but that would have been a better formulation in response to Hollies a question do you. This is gonna cost them some republican votes michael. Well you know people who have made up their mind forehand will continue to have made up their mind beforehand and no matter what he says they're gonna vote in what they think is their political best interest but if if an answer to the question of legal entry be a crime when the answer to that is well. That's not really a good question. Because some people enter illegally and then immediately apply for asylum. And are we saying that those people should be criminally Treated as a matter of for instance there are questions and there are questions and i think that was a bad question. He didn't give a great answer. But i think surprise them a little bit to have put so baldly when it's a much more nuanced legal answer. What is what is a cross border. Entry that is criminal versus not criminal but as i said the outset if they want to vote against him for political reasons you know they can find any number of tidbit sort of answered. I thought that was the. That's that's the closest that i think could come to finding something to help their hat on. I mean maybe because he didn't go as far as ted cruz wanted him to go and committing to you know. Let dharam continue. As long as durham wants to. You know maybe there. But but i thought this one was closer and by the way yes they're asylum seekers but they're also just people who crossed the border illegally in order to get into the country right but it sort of remind me of the culminating seen in my cousin vinny when he says that's a s. quest and she goes on to explain why nobody can answer that question because they didn't make that type of and i think this was sort of a a bs question if they want to hang their hats on that for whatever political agendas they have fair enough but let it's not a substantive basis by which to deny mccowan. Their vote voted confirmation. There was another moment in the hearing. That i appreciated Even though it may have like flown by hey most people. And that's when Senator ossoff the new democratic. Senator from georgia started asking him about what he was going to do. About the appalling conditions that was also a phrase in the fulton county jail. And then he even read even read a whole passage from a brief lining. Just how disgraceful. The conditions aren't fulton county jail. And it did remind me that among the problems that are former president has is an active investigation by the fulton county prosecutor into his efforts to overturn. The results of the election occurred to me that Donald trump could wind up in that. Full county jail that Also was talking a little premature but you never Well yeah well look. This is worth talking about this today. Because we also got the supreme court's ruling saying yes. Cyrus vance in new york can get trump's tax returns for his investigation into trump's finances..
"merrick" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"So jamie i wanna start with. Un merrick garland go way way back. And when i first met you both you were deputy attorney general and he was your kind of his title was principal associate deputy but everybody had a thought of him as jamie guerrilla right hand. How did you come to know. Merrick garland and how did he come to be working for you. At the justice department american. I had known each other since college. We met on a committee to which we were both appointed. I as a junior and he is a freshman to look at various issues relating to undergraduate life. And it won't surprise you ben that i was crusading for equal rights for women In the university and particularly in the college on things as diverse as eligibility for fellowships and eligibility for football tickets and merrick was the best supporter. You could've wanted. He was My wing man and was wonderful in those in those arguments most of which many of which i lost but the the fight continued in eventually was one and so this was obviously significantly before you came to the justice department. How did he end up as your principal. Associate when you were deputy but we stayed friends between college and nineteen ninety four when i got to the justice department and you know we were just personal friends and our families were friends And we always wanted to work together in. There just wasn't an opportunity. So when i was putting together the confirmation process for for janet reno i asked merrick to help with a substantive briefings of the attorney general. She got to know him right away and saw how terrific he was. He was a key player at the department in the criminal. Division for that for sheer when i was general counsel over at dod. And then when i was brought over to justice to serve as deputy j. the most obvious thing to me particularly since he'd been there for that intervening year and he was terrific as i knew him to be was to ask him to be my my pay check. So i don't mean to speak ill of janet reno whom As you know high regard for but it was had. I don't think it's speaking ill of the departed to say that she had a tendency toward micromanagement. And that one of the things that you and merrick had to do in the period in which you were deputy was to kind of have a management layer so that she wasn't focused on the details of every brief that was filed anywhere in the department is that is that too much of a. Is that an exaggeration. Or is that a fair characterization. She knew herself that. The management of the department was off a wind. She and her then. Deputy fell hyman parted ways. And she called me to ask me if i would consider coming from defense to justice and i loved being at defense I asked her what what was wrong. What happened and she said in essence. Both of us wanted to be attorney general. I need somebody to run the place. Because i am not feeling free to be the ultimate decision maker. Because i don't i don't feel that the rest of the department is being run now. She knew her own tendencies. And there were some actually humorous aspects to those sentences but it also was true. That phil i also spoke with felt that his most important contributions would be at the policy level and frankly that department is so sprawling and so horizontal that it absolutely needs a deputy a who can run it and serve up cleanly to the a g the decisions that Only the ag should be making so one of the reasons. I wanted to talk to you today. About merrick is that he takes over that is in crisis and the diminshed. The full dimensions of that crisis are itself pretty sprawling any has extremely deep experience with that department but it isn't recent experience and you and he were there at the very beginning of this pivot. The department has taken to becoming a real national security component although it always had elements of that but you know that process has had twenty five years when he's been on the bench to or twenty years while he's been on the bench to mature and so i'm interested for your thoughts on you know if if you were to go back to the department or for him to go to the department now. How's it different from the way it was when you guys were there well let me say a couple of things to be sure. It is different. I personally have stayed involved in the national security community. I've served on the defense policy board and On the as advisory panel alternate intervening. Twenty-three years but merrick as you point out at has not. He's been doing other very important things but he hasn't done that. The good news is that an ag and a deputy to be complementary and you couldn't have a better a deputy g. in terms of experience with the national security environment. I mean lisa. Monaco not only served as head of the national security. Division also served At the fbi and then was the key player in the national security council on On terrorism issues. So i don't have any worry about. This mean when i came from defense to justice in one thousand nine hundred ninety four the That ag janet reno asked me to make sure that the department of justice was connected with the national security agencies. Which i which. I did i set up the first office within the deputy attorney..

"He just wasn't living very well. He's living in iron bed nicole. Storefront he said you know. I've always wanted to go see europe. The continent and I'm i'm going to try my hand in belgium and see what they think of my exhibit and so we moved to belgium for a while and started up an exhibit there. Yeah so in. Belgium is where He had some sort of ups and downs He was ended up being robbed Manager there took him on and he took basically all the money that he had saved and it was a good amount of money You know. And that's i think that's kind of that. He had some Some decent success and made a decent living back in the uk and in eighteen eighty six. He goes back to england. And he's there. He goes back to the london hospital. They say that this is an incurable thing. That you have and There was a published in the times from the chairman of the hospital. Francis car bomb that said That talked about his case. Basically said hey. If there's if there's anyone out there that thinks they could help this man Please get in touch with us. There was a big outpouring of support mainly financial Which really helped me out. Because like i. He had his life savings taken and was definitely a hard luck case at this point financially and he was able to use that money Basically to live on for the rest of his life. Yeah yeah i mean like. There's a story that that Treves said in his memoirs. I said before. There's only two surviving pieces of contemporary writing about joseph merrick. One is the memoirs of frederick treves. His his doctor the man who ended up becoming his doctor. Then the other was the pamphlet written In part by joseph merrick about his life that was handed out at the side. Show but intrigues memoirs. He recounts a story that Joseph was so bad off when he finally found passage back after being abandoned beaten robbed in belgium when he found passage back to the uk. He couldn't even speak We either because he was just so so shattered by the experience or because His the bony projections in his mouth had progressed so much. But regardless the police supposedly found a business card of frederick treves on him. And they took joseph to frederick treves so he was kind of at least according to treat memoirs delivered by providence. Back into his hands and then yeah at the hospital. They were kind of like you. Look you know. This is a really sad story. But he's an incurable. There's nothing that we can do about it. He's gotta go. And if it hadn't been for francis car gombe basically turning out and saying like hey we don't know what go fund me is yet but this is basically what we're going to do and the response that he got was just so massive that the yeah. They basically said okay. There's enough money here. Now that you can live here for the rest of your life if you want to and one of the big things that really kicked it off. Chuck was a visit from alexandra. Or alexan- yeah alexandra Princess of wales and the princess of wales title is what Princess di or kate middleton have now had has now like it's a big deal title in the royal family so this is basically like princess di. You're prince's kate showing up to visit him shake his hand and so it became very fashionable among London's high society to visit joseph. American patronize basically and make sure that he was supported and it really gave the last four years of his life. Like this amazing boost like he went from real hardship and exploitation to about as cushy life is somebody with his medical condition can have and being celebrated as a a really interesting good person By london you know.

"Said a lot of trouble walking and talking but when he was examined by By the doctor he was like you know other than this. You're in pretty good health He ended up having heart problem later on but He said other than that. You're in decent health. And he said. I would like to present you if i could to. The pathological society of london and to come in for more exams. And this is at this point. Where merrick I think sort of caught the notion in his head that listen i am getting the same feeling of being on display in the store front And i don't like how it feels. I think one of his coach was The experience made feel like an animal in a cattle market. And he said i'm not gonna I'm not going go from Showing myself in the storefront to being paraded around in front of a bunch of doctors for free. Some sort of some sort of weird medical experiment. Yes so so treats like very clearly identified joseph merrick as a really great case. Study that treves could make his his name on and ultimately he did But when he asked joseph to come back for more tests and more displays and demonstrations. In joseph declined. Apparently treves was very upset by this. And then a lot of people say not coincidentally but it's never been proven that he had any hand in it whatsoever shortly after He was rebuffed or he rebuffed treves. Invitation again The elephant man exhibit was shut down by police. London outlawed that particular exhibit on the one hand. It makes sense because victorian society. It kind of started did come to see sideshows or freak shows. They were called at the time as really exploitive in distasteful even ones where the the person display was a willing participant and then other people think well. It was revenge by treves. He he was kind of that kind of person potentially to do something petty like that but however it happened his show got shutdown and he found himself pretty well off like you said like he had a lot of money..

"Man's head So it was just enormous and all it was was he had cells that were that didn't know when to stop growing whether it's bone or tissue or skin or whatever and he also had problems inside of his mouth with bony growths to which affected his speech. Yeah he He couldn't sleep laying down he had to sleep. I think one of his Associates later in life he. He liked to draw curtain around himself when he slept but one of associates. I'm kinda peaked. In one night and saw that he slept sitting up with his knees drawn into his chest with his head resting on his knees So if you can imagine like sleeping like that every night of your life Because his head was so strong and so big that he would risk waking up with a broken neck and it affected his breathing. right i. I wonder if the late seventy s when they first described proteus syndrome. If that coincided with the interest in merrick story maybe we solved it. That's weird yeah that would be whereby we haven't seen anybody meant that it's almost like he just appeared in the zeitgeist somehow around. Then don't i don't get it but yeah maybe that was it but But no. I couldn't be chuck because it wasn't until nineteen eighty-six that some geneticists said that he probably had proteus syndrome for the first time so it would have been after that. Yeah just strange. So one one thing. I want to say though about pro about proteus syndrome and mosaics zm Mosaic schism that mutation happens after conception so the the weird cosmic irony of this whole thing is. It's entirely possible that that mutation did happen around. The time that has mother was pushed down in front of that elephant would've had nothing to do with the elephants like she she wouldn't have been frightened into this mutation or anything. But how ironic would it be. If it happened. Virtually the same time you know. Yeah so In the late eighteen hundreds Eighteen eighty four is when merrick decided..

"One of the best films ever made about Joseph merrick and then there was a definitive book that was written as well by a pair of authors One of whom. I believe was like a doctor who had like all his research but his writing was a little over the top so they assigned a ghostwriter with them and they basically wrote the definitive on Joseph merrick's life An medical condition and all three of these projects happen independently like one was an adapted from the other anything like that and they all came out at around the same time which is really strange in and of itself. But it's even stranger to think that all of this happened. centered on a character. Who had been largely forgotten. By this time. there was really only two surviving Pieces of literature about him about joseph merrick. The man that That that anyone was aware of and they had been written in the nineteenth century but then suddenly for some reason in the late seventies three different projects started up about joseph kind of made him a icon for humanity. That is still you know lasting today. Yeah i think The seventy s spawned disco fever. Elephant man fever. That's right and they were both rather unlikely. Considering both disco. And joseph merrick were born in the eighteen hundreds specifically and england on august fifth eighteen. Sixty two so. I meant to look it up I don't know if it's is it. Lister shires like the sauce. Lyster lester right yeah. You had that last time. It's just lester from what i understand. Okay so he was born. In leicester england on august five eighteen. Sixty two and We'll talk a little bit about what they are pretty sure his condition was but being eighteen. Sixty two at the time After he started developing Some very strange symptoms at the age of five doctors back then were pretty flummoxed yes yes so The reason why is we'll see is because they think he's one of maybe a hundred people in the entire history.

"Remember to the Chris Shooting Stars. I loved I loved your lists. So now we're going to go to fancy things and There there were a lot of lovely things in here but one of them had to do with I think this is where there's a A vase so describe a little bit about your Belief in vases and you're kind of how you collect them different ones you use for different things. And then maybe Described this two to page spread About a vase of consequence in a single breathtaking Dahlia. So I think if you are a floral designer vases are kind of half of your half of your love unhappy off of your half of your job Because I think this can be like a real integral part of of your work and sometimes times. It speaks just as as loudly as as the flowers that you choose to put an up and a vase can kind of relief a presents to the flowers and sometimes you just need a really exquisite this unknown you can put almost anything in you. Know doesn't even a really really nice. They can give a lot of elegance arrangement and I collect all different sorts services. So it's not like I only have fancy months. I also love planting flowers and ketchup bottles in the city's action. There's like flowers in Coffee Cup. So I think I think but I think the part of that is that you know can really speak to the to the personality or spirit of an arrangement and in the fancy chapter of course have to talk about the Z.. Vases and I have a great friend whose name is Francis Palmer and she is a ceramic artist artist in Connecticut and she's just been a huge inspiration of mine on Since even before I started my own business and I primarily fell in love with her work because she grows the most exquisite jolly as. I saw photographs of them and I was like who is this woman and where those lowers. I've never seen such beautiful Dahlia's I need them. I need them and then of course it. I kind of found her website and realize. Oh my gosh not only does she grow just the most beautiful cyrus that I've ever seen. She also makes the most exquisite potts an her her vases are like made made for hours. It's really rare that that potter is also just completely flower mad so she knows like exactly what flower goes with what pardon and then she can actually make the pot so I feel like her pieces are just like heaven to Iranian. And so you know when I was putting together advanced chapter I thought I have to have to do to her. There's a double page spread in in the book. That is one services on the left and it is like a little narrow necked kind of white earthenware single bud. Vase Pot And in it it has one of her Dahlia's which I believe my. Gosh she could she would kill me but I think it's Pinto Watermelon is the is the variety it's like a big dinner. Interplay thought is kind of ivory in the centre with kind of currently pedals that go out to pink and in his exquisite and the left page spread is a is just single in her face on the right is up close of the flour and the page size evasive consequence single breathtaking Dalia. The two could nearly drowned. You and beauty this Francis Palmer vase is like a pair of indulging choose whatever you put in it becomes chic. How do you know if you have a vase of consequence if the thought of breaking it breaks your heart and and later in the book there is a a section on breaking a vase and it is equally moving would you? Did you like to walk through that sure. That story is from my time in Japan and it is the story of how I I broke. thousand-year-old vase which is so heartbreaking terrifying on just like gut wrenching to think about got it on a specially made even more so because it was like my ekg on the teachers face You know like I said earlier but he has become a great friend on he had actually invited me to stay in his house and he said use any potsy like make. Whatever you on I use it make this like your home so I I did you know I kind of accidentally broke one of these one of his pots and I swear to God it was like I hardly? I actually never even touched the vase. I was like going for a vase next to it. Picked up and like just barely touched this Kind of really rough Korean apart and just touched it on the lip and lip just broke and it was like panic. Like I've never experienced of just like. Oh my gosh what have I don. What have I done? You know a few hours later when he got home and I kind of fessed up to this thing and I was like look I am so sorry. I'm just completely devastated. I broke one of your pods and he said Oh my God you know show me show me and I showed it to him and he was like he was really he he. He was very calm but he did. He did say amy. The Pot is one thousand years old and it was. My father's is my father's favorite pot and his father was also knickebocker master so he he said it was the last pot that he had used before he died and I was like just started sobbing uncontrollably and he was like it's okay you know and he he said this pot has had a long history before you and now oh you are a part of its story And then he said amy like there's everything breaks in the end and like I'll I'll beautiful things we'll break in the end And it was just the most profound unmoving reaction an moment in kind of my whole career with flowers which is like a right like all of the beautiful things around us. You know it's also federal And we should just kind of experience that while we can the crazy. There's a addition to that story which I did not in the book and this'll be like a interview special. The same same man gave me a vase which was like so. You know it wasn't a thousand years old but but so special all to me and just like my perfect shape for arranging flowers so beautiful and then two weeks after I got home. I was in New Hampshire. My mom was visiting and she broke she. It was like on the Mansell and she liked turned and somehow it broke in kind of a similar way. And that just like the the lip of it chipped off and might my gut reaction is like blind fury right like Oh my God Japanese in his pot that my sensei gate but it was such a great moment of being let it you know like just let it go like any. You cannot doc on so just his. His reaction has kind of touched all of so many different parts of my life sentence flowers. Flowers are not. It's just like this beautiful kind of reminder of what's really important. I love all of these stories. Amy And I have have interviewed Francis. She was an early Guest on the program in both you and Francis are in my first book which comes out in March and one of the things things I noted about Francis was that her pods actually. Teach us to see how a flower is working or how it's moving or how it wants is to be held or or display like it her pots. Show us how to see flowers and I would say without hesitation. That your your book in the stories stories you share in it offer us a a beautiful tribute to the many ways we can see flowers and that is a beautiful expansion. I'd love to have you end by reading something That you've chosen from the book that you think might right. Speak well to to to readers listeners. So I think what what I kind of liked to read for. Everyone is just a little section of the introduction to the the humble chapter and I worry that humble ours don't always get the admiration they should but then again humble hours asked for no admiration at all they simply bloom as they are whether they're tended or not the first crocus. The year is a humble flower. It`soft yellow pedals pushing out of the ground delicate on shivering. But don't be fooled into thinking that little yellow crocus. This lowly early it takes amazing strength to withstand winters last frigid gasps. We all start off humble completely unafraid to admit that how much we don't know where to clouds come from why the leaves changed in the autumn. Wider Flowers die. It's only as we grow older that we stop asking the questions that make us feel small the more I observed the whole natural world not just the overtly beautiful flowers the greater the sense of amazement and I felt toward all things both humble and ground. The word humble is derived from the Latin Hummus which means the ground it's only fitting then. The flour spring forth from the soil rooted in humility from the very start to be humble is not be timid or passive but to ground yourself in the knowledge of how much you have yet to grow.

"Means something to me in house like kind of deeper Wanted to write a really great book. I didn't WanNa just write a book. About how how arrange flowers and so. I kind of held off held off the publishers for a for a few years in in that intervening time you know I. I had established this large floral studio in New York and then kind of turned my back on it a bit and move to a little. You know an Austin Grid Island where I worked on a flower farm for a while and then moved to Japan where I started teaching my own Flower arranging arranging style and also learning Eka and come so many different journeys and finally after all of these years of like running around the world running around the globe up this artisan amazing publisher Leah Ronin who who is the WHO is the publisher there You know she just sent me an email that was like hey amy you know it's been four years like do you WanNa do a back now. Are you ready because we really want to do. A flower back And we really they want it to be with you but like if you're not ready we just need to need to move on and I was sitting at the time when I got that email with my I am a teacher who had become a really really close friend and And I turned to him and I was like I just got this email and what I say okay. And he was like amy just right out he was like right now. You don't think anything about it. You just right yes you just say yes. I'm ready to do the book. And then and then you can figure it out afterwards but what you have to do right now is to say yes and I think it wasn't until the point. I was able to step away from from the kind of a business that I had built a New York and then kind of gone to learn how to become a flower farmer on grow grow hours on you know go from selling these like enormous ridiculously expensive bridal bouquets to them actually harvesting czars and making these beautiful twelve dollar caller a bunch bouquets and telling them at the at the San Juan Island County farmer's market on Saturday mornings that I felt like I had enough experience enough enough different kinds of experiences to to understand flowers all of these different levels. And that would be enough for me to kind of if I could. It could harness all of those different things and kind of find a way to put them all in one book. That would be a book that was worth waiting. You know nearly a decade to right So that's kind of how how we how we are. We are right now the I think for me looking at this and At the age I am and where I am in my career and I think about my daughters who are just in college and then I think about about the journey that you've shared in the book and I think one of the important things that captures so beautifully. Is this this EB and flow of of what it means to be in relationship with plans but also in relationship with yourself l.. Working with them. And your your you know building up of this great career in New York. That sort of you know at least I on paper everything that anyone might want from a career and then kind of personal fern out or or right like stuck place you got to that then sent you to these small flower farm. It's such a beautifully moving depiction of what it is when we hit a wall in our lives and what we decide to do with that. Will you describe that a little bit. Because I just think it's so important for people on their own paths to hear about people they admire and how they handle this kind of a moment in life I think you know for me. The kind of beauty Of of nature is it's kind of constant change. It's like the one thing that you can you can rely upon as that every day. We'll be different and I really feel like you know in my own life and in my own career. The kind of ultimate the goal our hope is that I always give myself the freedom to grow into a different version or like the it to grow higher into a different version of myself or to like that my roots grow deeper and become more solid and who I am on. I think you you know working as a florist in New York. It was so fantastic. You know fantastically rewarding to to build this thing up on at the end of the day I I just thought is this is this like the plateau. Is this the moment that I just continue on with the same thing and I thought no I wanna I wanNA challenge myself else and learn more and go deeper and kind of experienced this thing. I love on all of these different levels and honestly it's really terrifying. Took kind of continue.

Mel People's People's uh-huh articulate as always one of those words. I love the word people's because it just automatically makes you smarter money's at mytalk. Yeah when I say people say no. Oh care giving. I'm getting these enduring aw all right now thinking more concerned about it. Don't worry about the I mean. That's got to be really hard to come into a field that is still predominantly imminently mel based in male-dominated and trying to lead away. Try New seminars. That's phenomenal as a black woman just paving her way through seatbelt that quote architecture should be working on improving the environment of people in their homes in their places of work and places of recreation. It should be functional and pleasant not just in the image of the ego of the architect said I think that's good insight into how she felt about the work that she did once he retired tired or I like this part. She lived with her family in southern California and she had garden parties in the spring time which sound really fancy. I don't know if I've ever been to to a garden party before but I would love to. I've been to one Wisconsin by June company and it was beautiful Jin. They're also much off. After like two is the thing that you drink at garden parties though no you drink like is it mint juleps type of thing and that's more isn't that whiskey NBC yes in style so more on those lines maybe a little bit of lemonade tease yeah but that would be what I would think of as Garden Party but but if it was my garden party a lot of I think we can make our own rules when it comes to the Garden Party so I think there's a lot of like that croquet. Okay game yes again which refers to heather's do people. WE'RE LETTING SAMANTHA DOWN ON FINDS The friends here if you if you keep naming things will shuttle theory you guys also have the spongebob reference what True Yeah. I will watch heather's. Yes we have a party. Let's have a garden party. Actually that was named party for that at one of the restaurants in Atlanta dressed up. I don't know what it was for but it was really. They're really cute and stuff like that. Yeah we can. We can make it work because what is it. The heather is like this is the sporty heather. Is it like spice girls but with heather who's the leader okay so I can just scary. Heather Heather would be one. Oh Ryder's character to whoever heather she's off Bianca. Oh I can't do that I can. I can see that out because they've come for you. GotTa get mean but Heather on Ryder's character is the dark haired. One INCAPACI- Shannen Doherty isn't as well as well as Christian slater. Oh what a cast best. She was still really active in all the architecture things going into the later years of her life. In two thousand and three she was appointed into the California architects board where she served on the Professional Qualifications Committee and the Regulatory Enforcement Committee. I was really hoping that she was just the the as the whole community wide. I'm here for what a bunch of other boards and committees to we don't even go into in two thousand eight the AI gave her the Whitney m young junior award which is an award that recognizes an architect or an organization that embodies the profession's responsibility to address social issues and she died four years later in two thousand twelve of heart failure at her home in California when she was eighty five years old yeah but she was clearly recognized as for the work that she did while she was alive but she has gotten a posthumous ord as well just this year in July twenty nineteen she became the first black woman comment to be given the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles Gold Medal and that gold medal is given in recognition of a significant body of work with lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture and that's the highest honor that the organization awards so she's as many people are in in have been awarded things posthumously as well so it's good to know that a person you know he's talking about giving people they're flowers while they're still alive and for them to be awarded while they're alive but also important to remember people after they've gone and the work they've done especially pioneering hearing it feels like this kind of opening like she acted as a mentor to opening it up to other people who may think that they don't have a place yeah and that and feels like this and I think about this all all the time when it comes to being I or being a black woman to pioneer spaces that a lot of people may think of as Weiss basis but they are our our meal spaces white spaces spaces for men and not having a kind of path or not seeing a path or away for it for you because you can't see yourself in that organization but there are you know they're. They're you know they're there and I think having you you know being able to look back at a legacy like hers and being able to continuously honor. Her legacy is important. When it comes to remembering that we can continue forward word on the path that she created there can be more black women architects in the field they can you can be licensed? You know you can fail and you can apply somewhere nineteen times and the twentieth Glenn will be the one that you get so. I think that's why I think it's important to look back at a legacy Lakers right. That's very well. Put US yeah I agree. I think we talk about on this. Show a lot the power of seeing yourself somewhere and how much that can impact to you especially when you're young child. You don't if you don't see anybody. That looks like you then you kind of think well. That must not be for me yeah right so I'm glad that we have people like this. We have our female I that are s being examples and being mentors. Oh yeah an in on female I I wanted to shout out a couple of other people because I know I mentioned in the beginning that he was not the first licensed a black female architect in the US so the first first black architect period to become a member of a it was Paul Revere Williams in Nineteen twenty-three and before Norma there were Beverly Lorraine Green and Georgia Louise Harris Brown and they were also thought to be licensed architects in nineteen forty to nineteen forty nine respectively in both both of them were registered in Illinois and so both of their stories are interesting as well and I felt like we talk about this a lot in I in how there is a path for a person to get to a first there were so many other hands involved especially when it comes to inventions and stuff like that that a person's I wasn't isolated and also continuing to put into perspective respective in context why I is important in terms of like well other people had access in. There weren't barriers for them necessarily but you know it's there. There were leading up to her becoming having her first there were other people who came before her in beverly and Georgia where to those people and so their stories are really interesting as well. Oh and Brown recognize the beer she face because he was a black woman trying to work in architecture so she learned Portuguese and move to Brazil in nineteen fifty-three three because you kind of realized there was a burgeoning growing architecture seeing there and she later got her architectural license there as well in Brazil and she moved there knowing about all those advancements that were being made and she was also kind of seeking racial democracy because there's this kind of propaganda machine going right now saying look at us we we have this really open you know racial situation going on in Brazil but without needing to go into the details of the racial yeah like a maneuvers of everything and still is happening in Brazil right now like it wasn't obviously as rosy that propaganda made it seem so you know that how's that thing but she also was successful when she got to Brazil and started working there architecture but yeah those are stories as well if anybody wants to go on that path and continue continue looking at all these architecture I in pioneering women in it. Yeah Yeah. You've got a bonus female. I listen here is like a mini female. I within the female for Homework Homework Yeah We. I've always wanted to assign homework your opportunity. It's time listeners. Go out and find more female. I for US and send them our way. ooh Yeah because I think that's about what we have to say about Norma. thank you so much always use yeah.
