What Does Your Office Look Like?

Technological advances have made it possible for more and more professionals to work from home (including me). After finishing my temporary position at Holland & Knight, I decided it was a great time to totally re-do my home office.

I started with the premise that I would find a place for things that I love, in addition to the normal computer, scanner, diplomas  and obligatory plant. For me that meant quilts, All God’s Children figurines, a beautiful desk, happy pictures and a nice fragrance. When I walk in, I am happy to be at work.

Have you made your office a place where you feel happy to be at work? Most professionals spend way too much time at work. The least you can do to add balance to your life is to take the time to make your office a happy place.

South Fulton Celebrates Opening of Amphitheater

District 7, 84 x 84 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2004. A gift for Commissioner Bill Edwards.

A six-year long dream of Fulton County Commissioner William “Bill” Edwards came true Saturday night when residents of Fulton County celebrated the grand opening of the newly renovated Wolf Creek Amphitheater.   India Arie headlined the program with  performances also by Jean Carne, T. C. Carson and Chanda McKnight.

Approximately 5000 people attended the free concert, and it was clear the citizens of South Fulton were thrilled to see such a wonderful use of their tax dollars. Many Fulton County employees, as well as other members of the Board of Commissioners, worked hard to make the amphitheater a reality. It was a magical night.

Because of his unwavering dedication to his district (where I happen to be a resident), Commissioner Edwards inspired me to make the quilt shown here which is simply called District 7.
