Unlike Boabdil who, in 1492, gave his last sigh as he topped the hill and lost sight of Grenada, I neither sighed nor looked back after leaving my keys to the office building downtown and headed to the new office building with the last load on office supplies. April 1st begins a new chapter for office life in a new building.

Woot! Next chapter!
We’ll see how the pages turn. Thanks, Dale.
I’m sure they will be interesting.
I hope all goes super-well, Sir!
I think it will. Thanks, Inchcock.
Tim, congratulations! New beginning for you. The lamp is trippy, a great addition. Good wishes. 📚🎶 Christine
I like your new desk set up, Tim. Best wishes to you and the office crew in your new home!
Congratulations! I know what it is like to make a big change to your office environment, this looks like a positive transition for you!
Thanks, Tiffany. It’s a much better location and the building is excellent.
Welcome to the new chapter.
Your Strat mouse pad looks just great! Wishing you good times in the new office, Tim!
Thanks, Herman. I got the Strat pad and the StratAcademy.
Wonderful a new beginning:).
And isn’t that the perfect way of looking at things?! It is and you certainly have a great new view too! I love that lamp AND that Strat mouse!!!!! Beautiful setup! Happy April, my friend and my best wishes for your new office! 👏👍🌟
Thanks, Marina, I’m thinking about hanging a couple of art guitars on the walls instead of photos.
I think that is a brilliant idea!!!!!
Cool mouse pad there. So are you out of downtown now?
Hi Teri. Way out of downtown. We are just up the road from the Balloon Fiesta Park.
Cool! And that’s probably closer to home too.
A lot closer.
Very happy for you, Tim. Your desk looks awesome!!
Thanks, Amy Rose.
I LOVE your mousepad, the lamp, the position of your screens. Happy new beginnings. I especially appreciated that you alluded to the Boabdil sigh. “Verily,it was written in the book of fate that I should be unlucky and that the kingdom should come to an end under my rule!”
Hi Rebecca. I was thinking my feelings about leaving the old office after being there over 30 years were opposite of poor Boabdil’s. No sigh from me.
I know, Tim! But I haven’t heard about the Boabdil story for so long that I wanted to thank you. I am lucky to have connected with your blog! Always a joy to stop by.
Hope the first day at the new office is going well. When I set up my office at North Ranch, I had a nice clean desk. Since then, I have organized stacks of notes. Nearby, an organized stack of important documents. In the digital era, I probably have more things on paper than in electronic form. I annotate better on paper.
Hi David. We still have lots of stuff piled around that we are trying to figure out where to put it all.
Your workspace looks great Timothy !
Happy new office!
Happy new place to you! 🙂
Nice set up, I remember you were looking for a new place a while ago. Everything takes time and it looks like it paid off. I like the idea of hanging guitars instead of pictures. Different and adds some spunk to the office at the same time. Love the idea. Glad you finally got your new digs. Hugs Joni
It’s been a lot of work sorting out 44 years of stuff. We still have a lot of moving to do. Thanks, Joni.
Thanks, Resa. I spent most of today tearing apart old cubicle partitions so we could recycle the metal and plastic.
