This is a not very good picture of the view from my desk. I was leaning back in my chair, so there was a little shaking going on. Still, it’s the best of the lot.
The city lights out there are San Francisco, the dark swatch through the middle are the waters of the Bay. The nearer lights are those of Berkeley leading down to the water.
I was trying to catch the magnificent sunset. You can see something of the colors involved, and the brilliant planet Venus.
That’s where I get much of my work done. Being able to stare out at a view like that is remarkably conducive to actually getting things done, though that might seem counterintuitive. I’m grateful and thankful for such blessings as simple things like quiet, a view, a working computer, and such.
