Threads of Interest
Some offices I enter sport childish colorings pinned in prominent places. They make me smile and I know this represents an important part of this person's life. Occasionally, an office will be more sterile with reports pinned at eye level and schedules neatly penned on wall calendars. Even after years in the same space, there is nothing there which gives you insight into the person who occupies that room. Why is that? Are they unhappy here? Perhaps they don't feel comfortable. Perhaps they are just private people.
I spend eight hours a day in my office and almost two getting to and from it. While it is separate from my personal life, I love what I do there and I couldn't imagine not making myself at home in the space. I love cozy. I love welcoming rooms. I want my home away from home to reflect my interests so I am reminded of why I work. My job is creative and my walls inspire me. They form the threads of my interests, the basis for my existence.
