Zoomed Out


Connecting On Zoom … At Work.

Seeing Bright, Shiny Faces.  Chatting It All The Way Up.

“…’Sup? … Not Much, You?”

On-Line Video Conferencing Gets Meh-velous Pretty Quick.



On Video … 

Face-to-Face In A Video Space.  On A Flat-Screen Monitor.  Talking Heads, Singing:

“Qu’est Ce Que C’est … Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far Better…”

Lips Moving.  Eyes Blinking.  Yawns-A-Yawning.



I Screwed Around Performed In-Depth Market Research For No Less Than 14 Minutes, Because I Properly Budgeted My Time … It May Have Been An Hour-And-49-Minutes, Because Projects Like This Cannot Be Rushed, So I Ever So Smartly Invested The Time …

“Surfing For A Cool Virtual Background To Download.”

I Bypassed All The Righteous Puppy And Kitten JPEGs – Very Tempted – Until I Found A Couple Classic Backdrops: The Beatles And Niagara Falls.  I May Debut The One Of The Fab Four Going Over The Falls In A Big Barrel … Later Today, To Build On My Current Inventory, Which Includes The Defaulted Pix Of The Golden Gate Bridge And Tropical Beach Vista. 

“Who Am I Fooling, Really?  I’ll Take Any Pic Of Narcos Or Ozark From Netflix.”



Most Days, I’m Incubating For 9 Hours … In A Taupe-Greige Drabbed Biosphere …  

Inconceivably, The Office Door And Millwork Is Trimmed Out In The Ugliest Shade Of Teal: A Color Officially Defrocked By The Rainbow. 

Also, It’s A Special Place – Messatorium – Serving Multiple Purposes, Few That Are Related To Productivity.  In Order Of Friday Deflection:

“Convenient Hiding Place In Plain Sight (I’ve Mastered Public Cloaking), Lunch/Snack Room, Doodle Factory, And Blog Inspirational Booth … Book Your Virtual Tour Today.”
