if you come in the door to my office, my desk is immediately to your left. when i'm in my office, i'm normally at my desk. often on the computer. i've got some collages and a couple pictures of shannon on the wall behind me. i've got my coffee mug there on the desk (this is possibly the most important peice of 'office equipment' that i own). on the bulletin board above my desk is a 45 lp of the dave brubeck quartet's 'take five.' there are also pictures of aragorn, derek jeter, and ben roethlisberger. all of these serve as inspiration.
here is the view i have when i am sitting at my desk facing forward. i have a little table and some chairs, and my other bookshelf. these two windows look out onto the picturesque river that flows by our church.
this is the part of my office that is to my left when i am sitting at my desk. besides the fact that the closet doors aren't hung yet, you will notice my awesome communion set, made by my friend emily deviits. you can see three collages that i've made there above the communion set. the wooden cross and flame behind the communion set was made by friends of ours from toms river as a gift when we left.
so welcome to my space. i often see the world from this vantage point, so it is important space for me. it is at its best when there is more than just me in it: when joel (the youth director and my friend) is sitting there talking with me, or when shannon, jack and cade stop by for a visit, or when a church member comes in to say hello. like most of our spaces, it is better when it fosters community and conversation.
much like a blog...
