i recently visited the goat farm near downtown atlanta. it was such a treat! it is 20 acres of old factory buildings where machines were once made to gin cotton. now it is taken over by artists, farmers, dancers, potters, fashion designers, and all sorts of creative people. the old buildings are beautiful in themselves, but new creativity is blossoming everywhere you look. creatives live and have studios there. there's a wonderful coffee shop to hang out in, an organic garden, dance studio, and more. it feels like out in the country; no tall buildings in sight. there really are goats at the goat farm, too! it feels like a groovy commune. i loved it!
