Welcome to My Office...

This afternoon I was drawn from my basement labyrinth up to the sunshine (images of Plato's cave--I don't know if I can ever go back). I quickly created my own portable office on my back patio. It was a delightful afternoon, surrounded by flowers and fall light, the sounds of birds and an occasional Pentagon helicopter, and, of course, all my books on slavery in early America.

As the sun goes down... still trying to finish just one more book...

How cool is my life?!?
(and I say that in all seriousness...)

(And THANK YOU for that link to the Maxwell "patience" talk in your previous post. I'm working on a little writing project and had not read this. needed it.)

hope you're not still in your office this late...
