I am, oddly, happy out here in the serenity and isolation of the Catskill Mountains. Of course, I do get down to the city (well... the Jersey suburbs) frequently. Come to think of it, I was just in Chinatown.
This was my view this morning, a bit after sunrise. Yes, my office looks out over my garden. I want my garden to be special this summer. It is going to be a special summer with the arrival of two grandchildren. Twins!
You can see how a productive and beautiful garden fits in. I'm making my life beautiful and quiet out here, and I'm hoping that motivates creativity in my artistic work. I pick up a guitar and play whenever I like. There are always two parked right next to my desk.
My office sits at the NW corner of my house. Above, the other view from my desk. I bought a pretty nice L-shaped transparent plastic top desk at, Office Depot... for sale... cheap! My girlfriend, the Karaoke Queen, advises me on how to find everything on sale.
