I mentioned that I moved into my new house a couple weeks ago. COVID-19 makes everything harder but let me just say moving was a nightmare. We survived but there are only so many Clorox wipes in the world and giving everything a quick once over is unsustainable. None the less, we did get everything cleaned and I think there are only 4 or 5 boxes still needed to be unpacked (as long as you don’t look in the garage) so I’m feeling really good about it.
One thing about the new house is my new office is huge. That’s a big win given I doubt any of us are ever going back to an office anytime soon, but it gives me an opportunity to reimagine my workspace. Not so much my desk which I have in a great space, but all those things we collect and put on shelves over the years. I have coffee mugs from Dames & Moore
, Esri UC badges from Palm Springs, books covering obsolete databases and of course business cards from people I haven’t talked to in over 10 years. I stood over the boxes of my office and offices past and felt like I needed a break from the past.
