Over at the OBN, a photo prompt went out to have the bloggers post some pictures of their computer areas. Do you have a great, inspirational view? A pigpen of a work area? What does that area look like where you unleash your creative talents??
I decided to take them up on the challenge. (Actually, my last couple of posts have been in response to OBN suggestions. Thank God Rebecca throws out these ideas, or my blog would be a barren wasteland over the winter)
This is my work station. What is the first thing you notice? I STILL use a desktop! Everyone else has pictures of them with their laptops. Not me. Even when I do something progressive - like use computer - I use the old-fashioned style. I have a laptop, but don't use it unless I have no other choice. I guess I'm just a computer curmudgeon.
Our computer "lives" in an armoire in the living room. This way I can be online blogging or doing OBN stuff, while my wife can be relaxing and watching TV, and we're both in the same room. It works well for us.
I have no view to speak of - just the neighbors house on the other side of the fence. My connection to the outdoors lies in the print shown below. It hangs above the computer . It is titled "Minipi Brookies - Labrador, Canada" and is done by a friend of mine, Harry Robertson. The print is signed, re-marqued, and is a limited edition of "Friends of the Artist". It shows 3 heavy brookies, with one rising to a swimming lemming. In my mind, I've have spent many hours in Labrador casting to those trout, even landing a few. It's one of my favorite prints.

Now you know where these wonderful words of wisdom are born. Pretty pedestrian, actually, but I like to call it HOME.
