Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we’re from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.
Since we moved, my desk has been much more bare than it used to be. Ok, truthfully, part of this is because most things are still in boxes. But if I’m being honest here, I really love it. I have only what I need on my desk when I need it. The rest of what I use most every day is in the desk drawers or on shelves in my office. Having more bare space on my desk makes my mind feel less cluttered while I work.
I know that the act of simplifying my work space and increasing my feeling of productivity is not earth-shattering news for anyone, but it’s been eye-opening for me to do this. It was a most productive week for me with my work. In fact, I’m writing this on Friday before noon, and I’ve already finished the majority of my work for the day. I’ve finished some projects I had planned to do over the weekend, which leaves me more time to do some things at home this weekend… ahem, painting and hanging a Roman shade in the kitchen. I may even start a new book!
Mary of Moe-Digger Photography and I became friends in college after we realized how much we had in common. We each grew up with three brothers, played sports and studied history, languages and cultures. I still remember our SLR cameras and our love for shooting with film. We have shared many wonderful experiences together over the years and have supported each other through some of the most significant moments in our adult lives. I am excited to take on this project with her. Check out Mary’s Perfect Timing photo for this week, too: Rope.
