I’ve worked from home for more years that I
can remember. I’m asked if I miss the company
of others during the day.
My work is mostly solitary as it is, which means
I’m used to it.
Then again I’m far from alone, with two large
German Shepherds to keep me company. They
push my office door open with their snouts,
come over to make sure if I’m okay.
Satisfied, they head out to the long wood
deck, stretch out and soak up the sun. What a life.
Writer’s comment: Writing mostly fiction, it‘s
something to see how characters develop as if on
their own. It takes rewrite after rewrite –
sometimes longer to get it right.
