my office is in the space more commonly used as a dining room. a friend suggested i move the desk to face the window and now i face a beautiful tree which houses a little squirrel family. i watch them sleeping in a little hole while i work. one big huge important change was getting rid of the huge monitor that was old and scratched up. i do a lot of photo editing so now i am enjoying a flat screen lcd monitor and its slim shape. i fought with the idea of making this purchase, but it was a really great decision.
also, i built a shelf for cds that faces a pretty bookshelf. the balance in the room is very good for my scattered mind! i’ve also brought a few plants into the office, since i now have the space to do so!
