Thought for today:
‘When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.’
— R. Buckminster Fuller

Why this quote today?
Well, I am rearranging my home office.
There is plenty of space and I have some new furniture – additive to what I have already.
I made a scale plan, with movable outlines of the various pieces (we all do that right?).
The pieces fit together well and keep in mind a change in the direction I face (lighting issue for Zoom).
Yet when I put the furniture in that design it just doesn’t “feel” right.
It is a solution, but not a beautiful one.
As all this furniture has to be emptied before moving, I don’t want to do this too often.
So I tried to identify what it is that feels right – or wrong.
I cannot express it in words, it is a feeling about the arrangement.
My quest will continue, probably all day today!
