Normally in this space, we share behind-the-scene photos of our desks or give you the rundown of what one of us has been streaming, reading or watching lately. But these days have been far from normal.
My ears are beginning to recognize the rhythms of what they hear. Pop. Rock. Rap. Reggae. R&B. Blues. Jazz. Classical. Country. Folk. Show tunes. Opera. Hip-Hop. Heavy metal. Dance. Disco. Electronic. Elevator. And even spa.
The last few weeks (possibly months—our print deadlines are very early), I’ve been cooped up at home just like most everyone else. I’ve spent my days working with short breaks to entertain my cats, and I’ve spent my evenings diving into all kinds of at-home entertainment. What else is there to do when you’re under quarantine?
As we transition from winter to spring, I find myself torn between reaching for familiar, comfortable media and seeking out something new. It’s so much easier to rewatch The Office on Netflix for the fifth time than to click on something unfamiliar. Or to reread a favorite book instead of walking down to the library for something new.
So, about my desk… There are work spaces here at The Repository that could grace the pages of Architectural Digest. (Looking at you, Marketing Department). There are some here that are so neat and organized, they could bring a tear to the eye of a drill sergeant. My work area is not one of those work areas.
Besides writing for About magazine, I’m also a reporter for The Canton Repository, where I cover Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village/the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Strengthening Stark and other economic development projects in the county.
