I've been a part of the telecommuting culture for over 13 years now. For all those years, I've faced a blank wall while I do my work. My co-worker Kathy can attest to that because she came to check out my work space once. This summer the kids and I started working on these wall canvases. My goal is to do one canvas for each child and grandchild and line them up along my family room wall. I have wireless computers, but I'm just comfortable in one spot...facing the wall (although I could use a new chair).
Telecommuting can be lonely...there's no water cooler talk, no hot coffee available all day and really boring lunches. It's a culture that was almost unheard of when I started doing it 13 years ago, but now it's more fashionable and more readily available than ever before. I'm just thankful that it has allowed me to be the primary care-giver for my children.
Here's my first scrapbook on the wall canvas.
