    What I particularly like the idea of is that there is a series of "Cory in his nest" portraits with the special things called out and that each portrait can preserve a time/place/person you are. Then you can rotate out stuff that isn't you anymore and change things around and take a new portrait. Very energizing!

    Gustavius: too funny; that's the very first thing that popped into my head when i saw this.

    awesome office space, cory. good to see you so focussed on your work. clutter doesn't hurt if it's not a distraction. the annotation is a nice touch - stuff is just stuff until it's got a name/use...

    It is always both time to get over and time to celebrate yourself.

    Cory is more stubbornly himself than many and that kind of attitude isn't necessarily designed to please anyone else.
