A writer’s — and jewelry maker’s — desk

My kids were looking at my desk and my 13yo said, “I suppose this is what you consider organized?”

“Yes. I know exactly where everything is,” I replied. I turned my back to the desk and closed my eyes. “Go ahead, name any object.”

She and her 9-year-old sister named several things. I could place them all. “The small anvil is on the pot-holder on the right side of the desk, next to the lamp… That necklace is hanging in the middle of the corkboard…”

They would have gone on playing the “game” all day, I think. I just wish I knew how I could remember all of that, and yet not know where I took off my shoes or left my keys!
