If I’m working on Morning Pages, I’m most likely sitting in the living room in my favorite spot: the corner seat on the couch, next to the side table and lamp. If I’m working on my Bullet Journal, ditto. Blog posts, same. Designing a Canva graphic or poster for The Adaptations, again, that’s where you’ll find me.
I should probably change it up every once in a while and give this poor seat a break so our couch wears evenly, but it’s become a habit. I have an afghan handy if I’m chilly (which is 99% of the time). The lamp casts the perfect light and there’s a very convenient coaster in case I’m sipping on coffee (or something else) while I write.
Alexa is nearby to provide a little background music while I write. Usually, we’ll go with a jazz music or maybe the Stan Getz station so that lyrics don’t intrude on concentration. (For example, the song playing right now is “More than a Woman” by the Bee Gees — because I didn’t select a jazz station — and so my head is bopping and all I can think about is John Travolta on the dance floor while my head is bopping to the rhythm. Should have gone with Stan.) I like some music on because otherwise the ringing in my ears drowns out my thoughts.
And now, I need to ask a favor. Are you enjoying what you’re reading? Do you have any suggestions for future blog posts in terms of subject or types of posts? More photography, less writing? Vice versa? Pick one or the other? Fill out my contact form and let me know!
