The quarencia assignment was very neat and interesting for me. Never before had I considered a place that calms me down as having any basis in physical space, but now I realize that this isn't necessarily true. the different outlook is, to me, a very new way of looking at what constitutes as a "home". This assignment allowed me to be creative to an extent I have never really been able to get into this year. In a way it was very relaxing to get the opportunity to write without having to analyze so deeply on things like thematic statements and instead focus on the creative edge in a writing peice. Wahoo! I hope we do something like this again very soon.
