My Work Desk

These crab apples were gathered on my way into work.

When walking to work I am often thinking of random things...

What is on my plate once I get into work. Where do I want to go for my lunch break. What am I going to paint next...

By bringing in little momentos of the outdoors I am able to create a better link to the outside world. It helps ground me and keeps me focused on the important things of life. During the work day it is easy to get caught up with the multitude of tasks at hand that I sometimes feel I lose touch with other values I have in my life.

Is there anything in your life that helps you keep balanced? If so, what is it?
