DESK THOUGHTS FROM ABROAD
My previous post was about author and historian Eric Hobsbawm.
Several readers have since commented on the many piles of papers adorning Mr Hobsbawm’s desk. And I just couldn’t let it go!
A work desk is a garbage can with drawers.
It’s pointless to have a nice clean desk, because it means you’re not doing anything.

Sorry folks … this was my desk and yes that is a reindeer at the bottom right-hand corner. Since this picture was taken we have rented a villa on the Greek island of Corfu. The desk has gone. The reindeer has been released back into the wild. I am now using a writing board.
Happy trails to you, until we meet again …
