Careful Organization Helped Me
Make Sense of My Life
In May 2010, our little Pom-Sheltie dog, Rocco,
snuggles beneath the vintage chest in my office.
Rocco liked to be where he could keep his eye on me at all times.
These photos are from May 2010, when I moved my office from the second floor to the first floor of our home.
I loved the way I could be surrounded by the woods near our house.
- I can sit an listen to bird sounds in the spring and summer
- watch snow falling down in winter
- smell the scent of lilacs and Rhododendron blossoms in spring time
- view the blazing colors of fall
All of the photos above are from May 2010.
I am happy to say that from this room I began writing blogs and books – I learned to communicate with the entire world after losing my sight – all from this little office that is one step down from my kitchen.
Today, May 28, 2019,
I am revising my office space again.
After 9 years, it needs another cleansing.
Below: PHOTOS from TODAY – May 28, 2019
My old chair was replaced by a nice new Lazy Boy Chair! I love it.
I sit surrounded by technologies for the blind.
These pieces of equipment help me communicate with the world through my writing.
The little dog who slept and watched me from beneath this chest has been gone now for 5 years.
I miss him a lot.
I like to look at my walls and see art work by friends, my 3 certificates of graduation for my degrees, and other awards and special items in frames. They keep me in touch with who I am as a professional and private person.
I advise other writers to have a system to organize your files and other materials.
Keep it in order so you can find what you need without having a melt down.
My favorite window view – facing the North-
This is the favorite view from my office.
You can see I have a wall for my yarn storage, too.
So this room serves me well as a writing space, and a storage space.
All because it is well organized for my needs.
Think about how you can my your own creative space more efficient.
