Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Um, could someone turn the light on, please?

As I sit here in the office, in my cube, I realize the lights overheard are off -- at least in my area. I'm in the dark. So, I start thinking how a cute table lamp would not only give me much-needed illumination, but would also spice up my cube, making it feel more like home. Here are some illuminating devices that caught my eye.

I stopped into Pier One the other day just to check out what they had and maybe get some home decor inspiration, and I saw this lovely, modern lamp. My heart skipped a beat as I imagined it in my living room, where I already have a perfectly good table lamp on a bronze table (so this one wouldn't really fit). It would, however, look fantastic on my desk!

I love strange shapes on lamps, and the wood really gives off a warm feel.

Back to modern... I just thought this was so cute, and it doesn't even look like a lamp! I could throw this in a corner of my desk, and it would look like a huge, empty pencil cup until I turn it on... and then it would look like a spotlight shining above my cube. Hmmm... Party's right here, people!

I liked how different this lamp looks. I like the warm wood tone, but again with the spotlight. That's ok... reminds me of a Japanese temple or garden. Peaceful and serene... just like my cube (yeah, right!).

Do you have a lamp on your desk in the office? What does it look like?

I like the 1st lamp and I think a desk lamp is better than overhead florescent lights any day!
