Further adventures in organization

I have this foolish idea that my office/studio at home should be somewhere that I could actually, well, work, not just store piles of stuff. That’s crazy talk, I know, but I keep trying. Most recently, I cleaned the desk.

I put away or otherwise disposed of all the clutter that had accumulated, leaving only things that are useful, or attractive, or both.

Hand bookends

Like my new bookends?

I had proper supervision, of course.

No guarantee this will help with my productivity, but it can’t hurt, and it removes the mental burden of piles of clutter.

    Isn’t it amazing how much piles of clutter can detract from your day? Is that Grendel supervising?

    Grendel is a great supervisor. “Are you done yet? Can you pay attention to me now?”

    Decluttering really helps, I think. I always feel more like working at my table if I have previously created space to make a new mess.
