My 2021 Office

My 2021 Office

What do you see: My 2021 focus on a more offline worflow

Paper Named 2021 Technology of The Year

L shaped desk. I love them. I do wish the corner raised up into a standing desk. I have stacked milk crates before.

My series of journals. This is new to 2021. Insgtead of ripping htoruh pads of graph paper I bought grid journals for each area of my professional life (I bought one for the truck for rando ideas while commuting).

My Rolodex. It will kick the shit out of your CRM any day.

B Major mixolidian scale tent. I am sure these exist but its a tool I made when I need a brain break and pick up the uke and take the fingers for a walk.

Poetry. Currently Rumi and Major Jackson. Try to write poetry everyday.

Doc camera. It never works well. I need to get a second camera.

Blue Rhino mic. Great mic for the price.

Reading stand. For reading, music, or writing.

Sticky notes. How else do you expect me to think.

Monthly calendar. I have 3-4 calendars to track. Time to go old school.

A weekly to do calendar. I used to try and do this on my website. https://jgregorymcverry.com/todolist but it is manual HTML. The to do list should never take time from the to-do list

Off screen: large whitebaord for writing on the floor, spreading out to think. Long term I want to paint one wall Kelly Green and three walls using whiteboard paint. Gonna be ugly as sin can't wait. Building stuido in basement and want office to follow.

My Office 2025

My office 2025: All of these are the same (the corner L raises to standing desk) but each physical element , notebooks, calendars, rolodex, is published to my own website or server. I do not want more interactive displays. Planet is burning.

Less LCD and Lithium batteries the better.

So a few smartbooks are attached to specific folders. Using something like micropub I can go to my website or to NextCloud for servers.

I bought a resusable smart notebook that syncs to the cloud and you erase the pages using a microwave. Then I remembered I don't have a microwave.

Someone told me to try a hair dryer. That might be funniest office accessory yet. Wonder what other cool things I could think of.

See you soon 2025.

Shit.
A promised made
to keep the poems
more physical
to find Pinksy's history in
everything.
Meaning in the mundane
now tasked to describe virtually
I wonder
where is the
the line?
Asked since 1959
Do we taste and feel
in our online spaces?
The faces
Real?

How I Wrote the Play at the Ridgline #Poetryport by painting a picture with words, a paper journal in hand, dog at my side, and falling sun

I realized that in much of my work I was always somewhere but never here. I had forgotten the embodied experience.Β 

Telling stories in simple observations is the only way to dig at deeper truths.

So I grabbed a journal and the dog and headed off into the woods. After walking awhlle I sat. Then I wrote. I tried to focus on all my senses. Capture a verse for each. This is a the first and only tool needed in a poet's toolkit.
