He called it that because that's where it all began. The center for my operations. My headquarters. And everything went out from there. The figurative center where I command from. Command doesn't sound quite accurate (okay, sometimes it does) but my husband likes to tell me I'm in charge. (Alright, so I am.) But, it's more like direct and instruct. At any rate, it's where I mentally celebrate.
I have this thought. (I know, when don't I have thoughts.) Every woman needs a Command Post. Someplace where she does her thing. Whatever her thing is. My thing is being creative. Doesn't matter what it is I have to be creating. So, for me it's a Creative Command Post.
I have the Studio, which I'm so happy to have. But, a Creative Command Post is a smaller space than that. I realize I don't have a real one in our new house but I've used makeshift ones. Like my bed. I will sit on my bed for hours. With all my creative stuff around me. Usually writing, designing, thinking. And sometimes, I use the dining room table. Spread it all out there so I can be near everyone. I don't have one in the studio. I have a desk, couch, and worktable but not a Creative Command Post.
Here's the criteria I think should be involved in setting up a Command Post
• comfortable - no need to fuss
• light - it helps the soul
• intimate - space to think, or whatever
• minimal - chair & table
• belongs - to you, your style, you own it
C - Comfortable
L - Light
I - Intimate
M - Minimal
B - Belongs
I think I'm going to rectify that. So the search is on for a chair, since I left that chair when we moved, though I did love how it felt. I LOVE the chair below. Love, love, love. But, part of me says this would not be comfortable, at least not for any extended period of time.
