Working Differently

I am entering the world of

Work-from-home

At first the idea felt a little daunting

Simply because decades

Of programming had taught me

To go into an office

Sit at a desk

Plug-away

Go home

Repeat

The thought of doing it differently

Was uncomfortable

Then I realized the freedom

That was awaiting me

At home I can wear my jogging suit

And go out the door for a short run

Anytime

And

I can play my music

Loud

And

I can work sitting down

Standing up

Reclining outside on my roof deck

And

I can completely control my kitchen

Unlike the break room at the office

Where birthday cakes and other

Diet wrecking sweets often lurk

And

Most interestingly

Sitting outside of the

Programmed decades old box

My mind functions differently

More creatively

Problem solving easier

Brilliant ideas emerging

Suddenly

Work life has become exciting again
