I’ve been cleaning and organizing my office. It’s a room in my home, just off the kitchen where I sit to write everything that ends up in my books, stories, poems, website and blogs.
Why there? I have “profound sight loss. ” This room holds the high tech equipment I must use to write, make art, “see” and communicate with others around the world. Here is where I speak with YOU, on a very good day. Thank your for visiting with me today.
An enormous part of my world is housed in this room. A life filled with creating visual art and writing – all my archives are here.
Everything has to be in order and easy to find when I need it. I’ve been working for an entire week to get this room organized – and that means I’ve had to sort through mountains of “things.” I’ve made some exciting discoveries this week as I have been working here.
Just today, I found a notebook where I wrote some things I wanted to remember, years ago when I could still see. I wrote notes on the work of Ranier maria Rilke.
This reflection from Rilke is perfect for today:
“Finding a thing is always enjoyable; a moment before, it wasn’t yet there.”
