For Your Inspiration: 19 Home Offices We Love, Remote Work Edition

Like millions of quarantining families, for the past few weeks my husband and I have been working from home and our kids “distance-learning.” He and I, in general, don’t work well together (he’s on conference calls all day; I prefer to do my work while half-tuning in to the Brian Lehrer Show), nor do our sons (let’s just say one likes to hum and the other really, really doesn’t), so we’ve all retreated to separate corners of our house. My husband snagged the study as his remote office. Our 14-ye...

SecondNature raises $16.4M for “healthy home” subscription products, like air and water filters

After a confusing trip to the store to purchase an air filter back in 2012, two N.C. State University students, Thad Tarkington and Kevin Barry, came up with the idea to make this routine home maintenance purchase a subscription-based business. The following year, their startup FilterEasy had a few hundred subscribers. Fast forward to now, and that service — now called SecondNature — has grown its customer base to hundreds of thousands by expanding beyond its original direct-to-consumer model to...

Just Here

F rom the Kitchen. A small tall section of wall is all the wall there is. It's a dark day. I would like to make a big long cloth to hang here.  Right now,  a few pieces of the past, including a painting by my son while in high school, I like it because of the cloth in it. And of course it brings back memories.  Especially in these days when I cannot see him. He never liked it much.  I remember my Mom hanging stuff in her house that I never liked much. Maybe it's just natural for older...

Senior Living: Struggling to reach vulnerable seniors living at home amid coronavirus spread

By Judith Graham Contributing writer, Kaiser Health News Close down group meals for seniors. Cancel social gatherings. The directive, from the Illinois Department on Aging, sent shock waves through senior service organizations late last week. Overnight, Area Agencies on Aging had to figure out how to help people in their homes instead of at sites where they mingle and get various types of assistance. This is the new reality as the COVID-19 virus barrels into communities across America. Older adu...

a softening

  G ood Morning. I softened the photos today. Because I can. Because I need softened. I wonder if the yellow walls make the light inside look so warm? Or is it just the nature of the light inside itself ? On the edge of Holding Pattern, a soft star.  I looked at the wishing star differently just now. I saw the box. And the arms of the wish as point of departure. Change. And then the wish itself as a soft promise for change.  It is raining softly now and he is just watching.  Things have ...

Everywhere I Look Is a Mess

Everywhere I look is a mess. I can’t look at my house because it is falling off a cliff. Dishes are mounted up to my chin, and laundry, like lava, is overflowing onto all the floors. I can’t look inward because nothing is organized. My sadness is mixing with my anger, and my anxiety is taunting my peace. I am easily triggered. Happiness can only be found if I can escape my reality and my mess, but the mess is everywhere. It chases me when I am on social media, I see it at Target, and I feel it a...

a path to Balance

W hat is balance? For me it is not holding myself steady so I do not fall over. Instead it is a sort of dance, a rocking inward and outward, a stretching exercise where the goal is to constantly reconsider center while pushing limits. To Understand center as fluid. Knowing it's changing position.  Managing shift. Reach. A constant in-between. It is so personal really. It's definitely not about following any one else's lead. It's inside. I cannot really explain except that it i...

It's a must. I'm changing furniture around again. That's a good sign.

Day 11

G ood Morning, Soulo like the ledge that tops the half wall that looks down into the FireRoom. He is watching for the deer. This part of the split level arrangement I like too. The ledge begins soon after the sitting table area, which is a little box that juts out from the side of the house.  Any way, while sitting, there is another eye level for hanging. I hung Lightning Woman. Woman Series. Resting. I just basted her to get the pins out. Then zing, just a drawing over the photo, to catch...

The whale-inspired design of this sparkling water maker is a connoisseur’s delight!

I haven’t had much experience with carbonated water, but I know there are those who love sipping on some sparkling water! Designed by Bokyeong Lee and Chunghee Joe, the Ocean Blast is a carbonated water maker concept. It’s been inspired by the form of a whale, or more specifically, inspired by the phenomenon of a whale rising out of the water to breathe, and expelling air through its blowhole, allowing any water vapor to condense and creating what looks like a white spray of water.Interestingly,...

Scott Norman: What it Was Like to Originate Texas’s First Reverse Mortgage

The state of Texas had been resistant to reverse mortgages, and home equity lending in general, for a very long time before things started to change in the 1990s. Much of the change in the state’s perspective on the matter was due to the efforts of Scott Norman, whose career as a legislative aide for a Texas State Senator first introduced him to the issues surrounding the industry. This began a years-long odyssey to get home equity lending approved in Texas. Norman shares his perspective on t...
