    When a person plies their trade, their profession or some personal activity in one place for any length of time they tend to keep certain items of equipment, gadgets, tools and resources on their work table or bench, in their study or shed. Were some observer with literary skills to comprehensively describe the work area of a writer and poet like myself such an observer might include in his description the following:

    the writer’s desk--its size, quality and orderliness--his files, notebooks, stationary, pens and other aids, his computer, printer, sources of illumination(lamps, lights, access to daylight), photographs, paintings, pictures, objets d’art, a brief outline of his library, the writer’s attitudes to and treatment of his books, the frequency of their use; other items of furniture, technology and resources; the time spent in the study, in this micro-milieux, on a daily basis; the view out of the window and at the doorway, the sounds of the street and of nature; the cleanliness, the frequency the study is dusted and vacuumed.

    There is much to describe and depending on the level of detail in the description a writer could go on for pages, but the above provides a general overview.-Ron Price, Pioneering Over Four Epochs, 20 February 2007.

    I’ve had a variety of workplaces
    over the years: bedroom, lounge,
    dining-room, study and now,  in
    these early years of late adulthood,
    I have the kind of order suited to
    my needs: an 18 ft. sq. desk space
    with its lamp, trays and dictionary,
    printer, computer, keyboard, jug
    and glass of water, pens, mouse
    and that lemon tree outside the
    window in my wife’s lovely garden.

    This place of creative tranquillity,
    this humble habitation, this place
    that is my study where I repose
    in peace in this my retirement
    far, far from the tumult of society
    and its madding crowd in these
    darkest hours before the dawn
    where my soul can enjoy the
    rendezvous with its Source and
    the ventilation of a quickening,
    renewing, clarifying, amplifying
    wind and its rigorous effects.

    Hi Ron -

    I don't like to see a substantial piece of writing go unanswered, but I do wonder why you are posting these pieces in the forums, where at best they will be seen by a fraction of the hubbing community, instead of tailoring them into hubs, where their potential readership and response level are so much higher? Just a thought.
