{at the office | spring things : a day out of the office}

. . . p and i were watching a program one evening awhile ago, about the theory of technological singularity, i.e. "human biological enhancement or brain-computer interfaces", or simply put, the [rather sci-fi] notion that one day, our brains will be melded with computers, and p likes to tease that it has already happened to me, as am always & forever attached to one device or another; and so, in an renewed effort to achieve a work/life balance, this week began a little differently . . .

. . . instead of spending the day at the office, most of the day was spent, instead, outdoors in the late-spring sun -- a late lunch and a leisurely walk through old neighbourhoods and pretty parks, a stop by a favourite café to sit at the carerra marble tables for two on the terrace overlooking the cityscape, only stopping to check the iphone once or twice . . .

{p.s.} but of course, one must return to the office eventually, and it is always lovelier to work in a space that's light & bright and filled with flowers, beautiful artwork, and most certainly, bits of gold, as in these photographs sent along by dallas of her new office . . .

Ah yes. Sounds as if we are all struggling with work/life balance these days. How I long for an entire day spent riding bicycles, strolling through the orchards and enjoying a picnic on a sun-dappled blanket. Perhaps, after the spring rush passes, that time will come. Until then, it was nice to take a break and enjoy your blog after so many months of being far too busy to take more than a quick peek.
Here's to balance! xo M

Where are the White chest of drawers with the silver studs from? I am in love.

so fun to see my friend's antlers on your blog... Daniel Crawford, from Richmond, VA, is the artist that creates those beautiful resin antlers.
