thought you might like to see (what's above my desk):

i had two goals this week. 

1. to exercise
2. to sit down and write

i did neither. 

i did however, attempt to create a better work space--one conducive to writing. this involved switching desks, trading my stool for a left-behind-chair, turning my bookcase to create a faux-wall and thus sectioned-off-office (yes, my manhattan dwelling room is that big). 

the picture is of what's above this new desk, in this new "writing" office: a reminder of past and present and the tether along which both run and change and meet. 

so that's something. this next week: the actual writing.
