I've got a Apple G5 Tower and my noise canceling headphones are on straddled across the top of the cpu. To the right is my 1Tb external hard drive. I always back up my stuff.

To the right is a moleskin notebook which I occasionally scribble notes in, but never poems. Underneath that is my "cool lines" notebook where I write down lines that come to me or that I read.

The dog painting is a gift from my sister-in-law, Suzanne, who is a groovy metalsmith/jeweler and artist.

My lovely life partner and wife surprised me with the impressive office make-over last summer when I was away at Kundiman.
