• Home Office or Home and Office?

    Anyone else have the luxury of working from home?
    I don’t know about your experience, but I’m finding it harder and harder to be productive. So many distractions and no structure.
    I am quite sure that if I had a very structured work life then the idea of working from home in my PJ’s would sound like a dream. I do remember being tied to an office with crazy hours. I don’t miss that.
    I do miss the camaraderie and having somewhere to go. I really enjoyed socializing with my friends at work and just generally being involved in life and the hubbub that comes with a group of people. So while I am grateful for the flexibility that work allows, I gotta find some place to get up and go!
    I need to be surrounded by creative people and energy. I need some focus and structure, and I’m on the hunt for a new space. Stay tuned, hope to have some good pics to post soon…Death_to_stock_photography_weekend_work (9 of 10)

  • What do I want to be when I grow up?

    DeathtoStock_EnergyandSerenity2An observation: so many people right now seem to be struggling with the question “What do I want to be when I grow up?”
    Doesn’t matter if you’re in your 20s, 30s, 60s, whatevers – this search for where we fit in and what to do for money is big fat challenging beast.
    It can bring up tons of junk and is one of the hardest places to be to just ‘enjoy the journey’. Nope, we want the next job and the decent paycheck and we want it last week.
    There is no magic wand for this question. I’m not even certain there are short cuts as the process of answering this question and the journey of self-awareness seems to be way more important to the Universe than any old job. That’s my experience anyway.
    So here’s to the seekers. the dreamers. Those of us who are still, or once again, asking who we’re gonna be when we grow up. I may not have the answer, but I can say you’re in damn fine company. That should count for something right?
    Love Always,
