Drawing Board from the Factory Assembly-line

This is the drawing board that I hinged to a wooden post at my work station in the factory. It was a simple, but bold step to put this symbol of creativity in a factory. It was bolder to actually whip out drawings in between running widgets on the assembly line. But this is what happened. I nurtured my dream in literally seconds-long installments. One mustn't think I was not working, for I worked hard and even won grand prize for cost-saving ideas that were used to restructure the lumber company I worked for. It was those little gaps of time that I used, where others may have taken a sandwich bite, a sip of coffee. This environment became the backdrop of my unfolding personal myth. I became engaged in my own mythic journey.
