The Wizard of Oz.... er, Ads


As most of you know, I've been going down to Austin every few months or so to go to classes at the Wizard of Ads, more affectionately known as "the cult". (for some reason they don't find that so funny down here, although they do say it's a common problem they have... hmm....)

Since most people think it's a little odd when they hear me talk about staying here for three days, I thought I would post a few pictures of the campus so you could see what it's all about. Above is Tuscan Hall where the classes are held.

Here is the Englebrecht House, the 14-room student "dorm". The only thing remotely dorm-like about the place is that the rooms don't have tv's. The beds are so incredibly comfy.
Here's another picture of the area around Tuscan Hall. He built the steps leading to the classroom on purpose. According to Roy, taking the steps down on the way into the classroom represents humility and surrendering your mind, and when you leave you are walking up the steps symbolizing growth and higher levels of knowledge. See?? I told you it was a cult! ;)

You mean this is where you guys have been staying? I thought you said it was a DORM! And I've been sitting at home in a house full of construction dust with 3 dogs? Which one of you is sharing your room with ME next time? Outlet mall here I come!
