Vaguery and A Little Stuck
Rachel, resident design genius who I am lucky enough to live below suggests before I get carried away with re-inventing Bonbon I reinvent the space in which I work which. At the moment it is not a well-spring for creativity, just a jumbled up bit of tables and bad bookkeeping. And tools and fire. And bits upon bits and feathers and metal and at the moment a giant boar's head that Jim brought in for some reason. That's why I skipped my Monday Dose of Inspiration for a little Tuesday reality check. When this happens there is only one solution: re-assess, re-do, re-organize. Can't think otherwise.
She suggests I make three lists.
1. the non-negotiables
2. the negotiables
3. my wish-list.
I am going to do the following 10 things:
1. pare it down to only meaningful objects and important work items
2. ask myself the hard questions.
3. dump the tool drawer into the middle of the room.
6. feel unhinged.
9. figure out where to put things
10 drink whiskey.
Anyhow, this was how Rachel explained it to me. Or at least how I heard it. Number 10 should go down the easiest.
OK then, feel free to help me. You know how I feel about you all. Any ideas and other nice pictures of work spaces gladly accepted. bonbonoiseau @ aol dot com. I am obsessive.
