My office is in an old, old building in the middle of…well…no where. Next to a swamp. No joke.
So we have all kinds of…visitors.
My boys love to hear stories of all the wildlife sightings. We have lizards and snakes and crazy giant beetle bugs…
I would prefer if they stayed outside, and that’s not always the case. It’s not so much the thing itself, but more the way it surprises you by darting out under the door in front of you!
Besides the total creepiness factor, working in the middle of the country has some benefits.
I’m close to home.
I get to take a gravel road to remind myself that I’m in the country when everything starts to feel a little pressed in.
And I get to see beauty all around me.
It’s lovely on good days.
It’s soothing on rough days.
Something I need these days.
