Work desk/home desk.
Post-it notes, phone numbers, important books (raccoon bookends), ads to proof, things once made meant to inspire me to make again. Not shown: several posters, file folders, a lamp fashioned from driftwood, an IKEA chair that miraculously does not look cheap - and greater plus - is not wobbly.
Laptop on a wooden tray placed upon an old trunk, upon which also sits a moss terrarium, an owl-shaped water pitcher (contents: bookmark, thumbtacks, cord for my phone), a glitter-by-numbers of the moose at NYC’s Natural History Museum, a mason jar (contents: rocks, leaves, pine cones and bird feathers from Ireland, Scotland, New England and California.) Not shown: a lamp carved with cherry blossoms and some pistachio nuts.

The greatest thing I’ve learned in this month of office-life is just how incredibly useful copying (Cc:ing) somebody can be. Previous to this, I could not comprehend the purpose of it - if you want to convey the same piece of information to two people, then why copy the email? Why not just put both addresses in the To:? The truth is, I still cannot explain the use for it, but I know it is useful. It is an intuitive thing. You just know when one is meant to be told to eavesdrop on your email.
