Watch – Calvin Klein class.

ParknCube_cK-Watches_001

Sometimes, just sometimes, you look up and around your hunch-back blanket-burrito and whatever deadline you’ve been quite professionally avoiding and think, my goodness the office looks like a tipped-over crap basket. The mountain of beauty products and pile of press releases printed on what seems like Peru’s last remaining trees have been long since shoved aside into a blind spot, but you conclude that the reason there are 19 irrelevant tabs open and three very very expensive things in the Net-a-Porter basket is all due to this mess. The juices simply ain’t flowing.

Of course, I do what everyone who has ever worked in the creative industry does and go out for fresh air, aka the equivalent of sweeping dirty laundry under the bed. When I was in Uni, I didn’t frequent much cafes – possibly something to do with the fact that my PC sang such noises (remember the ear-splitting Microsoft loading tune? That, coupled with my overheating spluttering Toshiba, burned coffees) and the fear of being judged by Mac-clad hipsters. I liked bright, big spaces instead… like libraries or museums. The British Museum was one of my usual haunts, with its vast, invigorating open spaces and architecture that made any dormant ‘good ideas’ to re-surface; on sunny days I’d sit in one of the triangle shadows cast by the giant glass-roof and read a paperback (gasp!) until I got hungry. Nobody bothered if you sat on the stairs for hours, and the staff only got riled up when a throng of schoolkids made too much noise or ran around. At which point I’d stop chasing them, but generally it was also a great spot to bring friends.

I have fond memories of this place, which is why I brought Calvin Klein to shoot the class watch, as a means of sharing one of my old stomping grounds with you but also because FRESH AIR is what this blog always used to be.

  29. I also go outside when I am having writer’s block! It works surprisingly well, as long as I am by myself without any disturbances taking a walk in the park for example.

  34. Is that a Pluss Minus card wallet? I’ve got one too!!!

  35. Haven’t worn a watch for awhile. I cracked the glass front on mine mysteriously (cause its so smashed that one would think I might have felt some pain when I hit whatever I hit.) I thought I would miss it. I haven’t removed it except while around water, or replacing the battery for what must have been 20 yrs. But….I couldn’t bring myself to replace such a part of my identity. It’s been at least a year and don’t miss it at all. When we all carry cell phones likes they’re a part of our bodies, a watch seems sooooo. tres’ usless. Non?

    I’m like genuinely in love with your text. In general.
