I found myself so discombobulated yesterday after the toe event that I couldn’t sit down and get back to work, and so instead went out and purchased and then mounted a fab new set of shelves above my home desk. I had shelves like these (though much less nice ones) mounted above my desk in a couple of apartments in New York, and it took me a while to realize that all that searching around for some new desk configuration I’ve been doing over the last month or so was all about trying to replicate the feeling of those old workspaces. So why not just go back to the wall-mounted shelves? Much, much cheaper, much more flexible, and I feel like I’ve got a whole new office.
