# The Best Remote Work is Delightfully Unglamorous
 

I’m currently working from my home office. My boring home office. What is awesome about my setup is that everything is plugged in, and all my A/V works well and I have the same setup every day. The awesome part is that I don’t commute and can really be as productive as I want to be. Remote work “from anywhere” is just hard to get right.

Offbeat

 

"The particulars of new places grabbed me and held me, the sweep of new coasts, cold, lovely, dawns. The world was incomprehensibly large, and there was still so much to see. Yes, I got sick sometimes of being an expatriate, always ignorant, on the outside of things, but I didn't feel ready for domestic life, for seeing the same people, the same places, thinking more or less the same thoughts, each day. I liked surrendering to the onrush, the uncertainty, the serendipity of the road. And I generally liked being a stranger, an observer, often surprised."
