First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who has submitted cartoon ideas. I will be printing them all off later and making notes on them and hopefully some drawings will result. Seriously, it makes a big difference, so thank you.
Today’s subject: working from home. Excuse the old cartoon (post with larger version), but it seemed to fit.
I find working from home difficult. People tell me how wonderful it must be not to have to commute, but I find that sitting in the house on my own all day every day not seeing or talking to a human being is not as idyllic as it first appears. I am not intending to sound as if I am complaining in a complaining sort of way though, as I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to be doing what I am doing.
Going out to different places (such as the Wetherspoons day centre for cartoonists and the elderly) helps a bit but not that much. The amount of human interaction in these day centres is minimal.
I am currently on the lookout for somewhere to go and work, but so far have not found anywhere. It needs to be in south east Essex or even possibly London. I do not have a huge amount of money to spend on such a thing, but I do have some. The thing I do have is the ability to draw pictures and make websites and I would be very happy to help out any individual or organisation willing to give me a small corner of a table to do drawings on.
Questions for study groups:
1) Do you work from home? If not do you wish that you could?
2) If you work from home how do you stay sane?
3) People in the Bible often worked from home, or didn’t. What does this teach us about things, or not? Discuss.
