    Default Today's Desk

    The following is officially "Today's Desk #2", since I started this somewhere else. Feel free to add photos of your writing space. So, this is today: still gray outside, Earth - tones inside. Two old friends helping me write to old friends.

    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    That is a neat and simple idea for a writing slope. I am kicking myself for not having thought of it myself. Looking for a clipboard now!

    Nice composition by the way!

    Well, Jon, since you asked...

    This is my desk for the next week as I work through the "10 Strategic Points" of my doctoral dissertation. I'm in Phoenix for an intensive class with some of the professors.

    As soon as the audience begins to participate, any actual content is lost in the resulting chaos and cacophony.
    At that point, all you can do is laugh and enjoy the descent into debasement.

    Impressive. I like the concept of a rocker blotter to save any scotch that might get accidentally spilled!
