Listening to every heart
Office work area:
Lots of personal photos pinned to the movable walls, plus lots of instructional sheets to tell me where people are at, what day it is by a scenic calendar, a pair of headphones hanging on a wall, a friend's "proof" of the front page of his newly published book, "Impending Wisdom" by Dr. Dennis Woodall, and my name tag that I rarely wear because I know who I am.
Oak laminate desk: Sony CD/radio/clock; monitor to engage electronically with others, keyboard; phone on a stand which stores books beneat it; East of Eden, almost finished, steno pad, speakers; Kleenex, red plastic cup filled with yesterday's water; coffee cup with lukewarm coffee, paper holder, stapler, a desk calendar [in case I can't look up to the scenic calendar] name plate, two candy dishes for guests, a green round paperweight, two filing systems with my monthly projects; calculator, mouse, mouse pad, pen, correction tape, post it note, yellow highlight, staple remover, and scotch tape.
Rest of the room: Metal cabinet for storage of LCD's; two book cases with primary colored expandable folders that carry reports and "stuff"; a very healthy green ivy on a little cherrywood "telephone table" that use to be in my house, with a mauve seat cover; two mauve-cloth matching wicker chairs, also cherrywood; cherrywood coat rack holding a lightweight windbreaker [blue]; black/beige/gray rectangular area rug; small room fan sitting on floor; one hard drive sitting on floor and one small heater, also on floor, along with one trash can, and a chair mat.
Miscellaneous pretties decorating book cases, including a Galileo thermometer, a wine glass that has etched on it "Poet" from my eldest granddaughter; a snow globe with an angel in it from my stepdaughter; four small assorted vases [just in case I get posies], another larger clear glass paperweight; a slate picture of New Orleans on a stand that we picked up in Louisiana in 1999; a Thesaurus of Quotations; a New Explorer Thesaurus; a brown faux marble bowl with rasied style carving depicting a unicorn, two 18 x 24" watercolor paintings of roses and lilies that a friend reproduced from a very small magazine photo back in 1984...also in mauves and greens...
my purse which sits on one of the chairs closest to me, with all sundry items [check book, wallet, camera, keys, phone, etc.] in one of those Buxton bags you see advertised on TV [and man, are they great!]
and that's about it. I'm very "at home" at work.
