Why It’s Good to Get Out of the Home Office

1) You might learn something useful.
I took a two-day studio workshop at OCAC this past weekend and gained some technical skills and knowledge I was sorely lacking while having a very enjoyable time with some like-minded people.

2) You might remember something important.
I was a full-time student at OCAC what seems like a hundred years ago (okay, about fifteen) and haven’t often visited the school since that time.  For all the ways it has changed, it remains much the same – and being in that environment brought back many fond memories.  It was really good for me to remember and reclaim that part of myself and my life experience.

3) You might be inspired by something you’ve never seen before.
How cool is this? [If you can’t quite tell from the photo, it’s a gajillion paper butterflies pinned to the ceiling around the exterior light fixture of one of OCAC’s admin buildings.]  It must be a fantastic thing after dark when the light is on.


4) You might have a good laugh.
Seen on a greeting card in the OCAC gallery shop: “Every man is entitled to make a kite out of his pants.” [Mexican proverb]  I’m still not sure what it means, but it cracks me up and I love it.
