Many people have offices in their houses that go unused. You can tell if they are. There is no disorder, no use or worn edges. For you see, used offices aren’t necessarily pretty ones. They have things lying out, there will be coffee stains. There are always too many tabs open up on the computer, and another stack of things to do. To some these things are imperfections, problems to eradicate. But, they are proof. They show someone is working, trying, learning. There are things lying around, so someone doesn’t forget their train of thought. There are pencil marks from when they lost themselves in writing, and coffee stains from the hours they stayed up working. We should be proud of our proof. For, what is the point of having something? What is the point of keeping something perfect to never use it. Often the most battered places are the best ones.
