I have spent a lot of time at my desk in the last week because I am editing a couple of PhDs. This requires long periods of intense concentration, which is good for my old brain! Every now and then I take a break and look at what you can see in the photo above. I have written about my room in the Writing section of this site but it is worth repeating that I feel very lucky to have such a lovely environment in which to work. To look out at the river, rest my eyes on the lush green trees and watch the occasional bird or monkey or lizard going about the business of finding food provides a wonderful break from the computer screen. Now if I could just get the Lost World theme park to shut up, if not completely then just to reduce the noise level, things would be perfect!
