Per Request: My Office on a Typical Day

Is it any wonder I need to escape to the Opium Den to work? I can’t find anything in here!

    Love the dog under the desk!

    It’s not nearly as bad as I expected! I’ve seen worse (my dad’s office) (-:

    Ann, there are two desks in the office and a doggie bed under each one.

    At first I didn’t see Jet under the desk because he blended in so well with all the other stuff, but now I see him! Just like you Diane, I have a beddie for Kramer by my art easel where he likes to sit and watch me paint. What would we do without our boys (-:

    Just decided to print off this pic so I could see things better and realized it’s KEEPER under the desk! Definitely printing the image makes thinks clearer and I can also see your beautiful covers from your books framed…awesome! Jet must be under the other desk that sort of looks like a rolltop.

    I have you beat. My makeshift desk is way messier. But I know where everything is on there. Winston used to lay behind me at my old apartment, right on the chair, I’d practically roll over him.

    Jeannette Walls-Glass Castle
    She spoke at a high school in Charleston (WV) recently-near where I go to grad school-in the county in which I taught until last year…I wish I had known…everyone said that she was gracious, interesting, and patient with questions…

    I wish you’d been able to hear her, Brenda. So amazing to see what a confident, strong woman came from those dysfunctional roots.

    Diane, Isn’t it ironic how our pasts help to shape us-no matter what we lived through?

    Yes, and that’s what I like best about aging. All those experiences we can learn from, whether we wanted to or not. LOL.
    And our characters all have pasts that shape them as well.
