This is where I compose my thoughts….on this lovely desk with more than 200 years of history and untold stories. Sometimes I wonder where it’s been, who sat before it, what happened in their lives. Note the oil lamp on the top left corner. This lamp oil is from the same era. Writing by lamp oil is soothing, sometimes romantic and it helps create a peaceful environment.
Beneath the pigeon holes I tend to keep my favorite books. Since I’m in the midst of changing things around in the house, not all of my favorites are displayed yet.
Of course my desk isn’t always this uncluttered. Usually it’s littered with my laptop, sticky notes, my Kindle Fire, an external drive (for backup purposes) and page after page of written notes, some crumpled and intended for the wire waste basket, others still a work in progress. And of course, there’s ALWAYS a fresh cup of coffee…
