    There are days I long for an office of my own, a luxury I haven’t had since I taught and, even though, only sporadically. Then I wonder if I would be lonely. Maybe, but it would be nice to be able to shut the door once in a while.

      I loved having an office and being able to shut the door! I never had a corner office with a view though 🙂

    I have an office now…and must say I don’t miss cubicle life at all. To be able to have a door that closes…

      I liked having an office too.

    I loved and am missing the cubicle culture of noise, sharing and laughter.

      For sure there is more interaction there!

    Oh, Kim! What’s there to do after someone reaches their goal? I really like how you evoked a tension off the page with the mention of ‘home’.

      Thank you. That was to show she gave up everything, including her personal life.

    “Silence, just like home.” That line fascinates me! It adds tension or uneasiness to an otherwise peaceful piece, and makes me wonder more about what her dream is.

      Her dream was achieving an executive position and corner office. The price was she gave up everything to get there.

    From time to time, I have had the luxury of working from home, and the silence is almost oppressing. It’s nice having that human interaction sometimes. I love how you encapsulated that here so vividly!

      I am home now and the silence doesn’t bother me at all. But I find it harder to focus because there are so many distractions!
