It's been quite busy getting back into the swing of things! Work is picking up a little bit, so that's good! I got a new filing cabinet, that was exciting... lol Pretty dull when a new 5 drawer lateral file gets you excited! My office is basically one large room, and I had to get some sort of barrier between ym desk at the rear of the office, and the entrance. I can't have people just walking right up to my desk as seeing what's on it or my comp. So I made a wall of lateral files and enclosed the space a bit. this will give a little better privacy for meetings and so forth.

I ended up spending the 2nd half of Sunday re-arranging my office at home. I have a lot of stuff, period. I cannot express it anymore clearly. I have a lot of books, and general stuff... trombones, a keyboard, some of Ians toys, etc all in my little office here. I finally felt like the thing was closing in on me and could feel no real inspiration in my little retreat any longer so I just decided to change it. I took everything out of my huge computer desk (the corner kind with the hutch on top, so lots of junk-attracting nooks and shelves), moved my other desk in beside it, got it all cleand off, re did all the computer wires, basically put away all the clutter in boxes so I could see what I have and begin to get rid of it. Now, I can breathe and my wife is loving it as well. I still have most of the stuff to go through, but now it's in a few boxes and not strewn about. I cannot get comfy in dissarray.... now I can create, think, meditate, pray, etc. I am one of those people who loves to re-arrange things in his life... My wife is not lol... She would, and probably will leave our living room the way it is until we move... I prefer change! Who knows, maybe some day she will surprise me. Either way, it feels nice to have a new configuration and more space, less clutter in my two creative/thinkin/work spaces...

Prayer for today...

God/JC/HP, thank You for another Sober day! Thank You for the inspiration to finally get a handle on my office. Thank You for a great jail meeting Saturday, a great prayer group Sat morning and a wonderful Mass Sunday! Please be with my friend Bev, her mom was in a bad wreck the other day and it sounds like maybe mom's not going to make it. I pray for Your kind Loving Touch for both of them, that You might ease their suffering and fears. Please help me to be there for Bev. Please help me with work, remind me to be Your servant, and to take great care of my customers, and to remember that good things are in store for me and my family.

may you all find yourselves at peace...

My working/thinking space is still a mess which my wife will gladly clean it up if I let her. I found out I couldn't find anything whenever I wanted to use something. Nowadays, my wife is out of bound from my working/thinking place, so do I from her working/thinking place. Her working/thinking space is always neat and clean, very unlike mine!

I just bought myself a new desk (a Chinese Scholar writing desk from 1900), so I know what you mean about getting all excited about a piece of office furniture. I won't even be able to use it for several months because we are building a house and the desk will go straight into storage. But it still is exciting knowing I will have that cool desk to write on waiting for me. I am looking forward to a better creative workspace too.
