My old desk at Pacific Northwest Bell, circa early/mid 1980's, some three stories down below street level, at rock bottom where a television studio should be. Here I worked in the audio video engineering department, tracking cabling and connections, and continually updating the drawings. On occasion, I also did graphic art production. You can see my handiwork laying on its side under the drawing board, a map-tack map of Seattle. I see the traces of tools and supplies from a bygone era, such as lead holders, lead pointers, non-photo blue pencils, Mylar, straight edges, and T squares. I labored here on and off for three years, all the while listening to endless iterations of audio video editing in the background. I had a strong tolerance for that.
I was fortunate to get this work.
