What do Humans Need?

According to Eric Wiener in the Geography of Bliss, Humans need a sense of home, a sense of community and more important, a sense of history to be happy.

In the studio at COD, we have a good sense of community.  That’s why I enjoy teaching there so much.  Students become friends.  I am the facilitator of technique and of an art community (afterall, we are a community college).  We learn about the history of being human through stories about jewelry.  All you do is provide a sense of ‘home’ and we have a recipe for happiness.  Not bad for enrolling in a fun class at your local community college!
