A Place Where Work Is Fun

Rachel Monroe once spent three weeks at Twin Oaks commune in Virginia, and she explores the history and work ethic of the community in a really fantastic essay for Cluster Mag. (“Even today, people joke that Twin Oaks is a home for Type-A hippies, the sort of nonconformists who chafe at too much idleness … Twin Oaks does not exactly cultivate a lounging atmosphere. Its home to the kind of people who will tell you that their work is fun. And, since they get to more or less choose when, where, how, and with whom they work, that may well be the case.”) (thx sarah!)
