As some of you know, when I was back in Maine, I worked out of an office in the bustling metropolis of Bath about 500 yards up the Kennebec from the largest single employer in the state (particularly now that the MBNA jobs there may be in trouble thanks to a BofA buyout), Bath Iron Works.
Shockingly, 1700 sq ft former artist studios are slightly more expensive here in Denver, and with the lack of any real justifaction for one, I’ve dumped the office and now just work out my place here. It’s not bad, as I’ve got a relatively comfortable home office setup, and doubtless there are thousands of cubicle dwellers or factory line workers out there that would kill to have the luxury of working from home. I do miss having an office, however, if only because there was some guaranteed separation between when I’m at work and when I’m at home, which is not really the case now.
That said, working at home does have its little perks. Pictured here was my office for the afternoon – complete with the basic necessities of wireless, phone and music. It may be ninety out, but it’s nice on the porch.
Speaking of Bath, however, I’ll be back there next week during some vaca. I’m hoping to meet up with a bunch of folks while I’m back, so if you’re in the area let me know. My schedule will be heavily slanted towards boat time and fishing, but I’ll have a bit of time in Boston at the end and beginning of my week’s plus there.
More on that next week; for now, enjoy your respective weekends.
