Due to the overwhelmingly deafening noise of drills, jackhammers and smashing concrete, we’ve recently decided to temporarily abandon our Vancouver office space. Although this maddening process will lead to a much-needed upgrade, our loft is, at the moment, unmanageable.
We moved into a shared office space located inside the New Westminster River Market where we can work in silence. The space is clean and well located but there are a few unexpected quirks.
For one, located directly across from our office is a circus school. The school holds daily classes for aerial silks, trampoline, aerial hoops, trapeze, juggling, and unicycle. I have yet to see anyone attempt a unicycle but watching people fall gracefully down the blue silk ribbons is quite the sight.
Then there are the nude sketches boldly lined up on every wall of our office. In our semi-private alcove there are 15 of these eclectic drawings, all for sale, and all done by a member of an art group studying the human body. We’re slowly getting used to people wondering in to browse at the art over our heads.
We thought we left the unconventional at 3rd on 3rd – thankfully, we were wrong.
