I call it that, but I’ve been renting this space for more than a year. It’s where I should be revising the Book That Will Make Me Famous or founding the Online Media Empire That Will Make Me Rich, one or the other.
You may think I’m joking, but I have a long manuscript sitting in a box that’s been provisionally accepted at a major academic publisher, and I do wish to be making some serious money.
The office has an enormous window, offering views of a number of historic buildings. If I stand just right and bend a certain way, I can even see the elevated train as it runs by.
This office is a sort of proxy for my professional identity. It looks a little better now, though, than it did in November 2011, when this picture was taken.
