In my travels to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho this weekend I met my friend, Albert Einstein Lassiter, flugelhorn player, who did a great performance in Salt Lake City with an organ player Josh Wilson, playing How Great Art and Amazing in an call an answer fashion. Albert was behind the audience and nobody knew he was there. A thousand people were in the audience and they all stood up, raised their hands in praise spontaneously. It was the kind of performance where it made you want to stand up, and we did, in unison. Albert and his wife Jena are both engineers, and they built their house in Coeur d’Alene off the grid. It’s two domes with a hallway in between. They were like kids in a candy store showing me their power systems, 50 solar panels and batteries, floor heat, and even an airbnb room if you want to visit them. Link to airbnb
What a sweet place to stay, especially if you are into being of the grid, a great greenhouse, organic farming, and hearing right from the builders about every step. Their airbnb room has it’s own private shower and bathroom, very clean and neat with a great view. They also have house concerts twice a year with a view of the forest. I love how quiet it is, only the sound of the wind.
