Oh, how we've missed going to the office. But
what is it that we miss when we miss the office? We've kept working,
we've brought office parts home with us, box by box, frame by frame.
From Microsoft's office package to big computer screens to back support
chairs to frames of mind.
What didn't we bring? The meetings or coffee machine conversations? The bosses still found ways of getting us to listen to them talk for hours, and small talk was just as awkward on zoom. How about the sense of purpose, or how the office grants us time to waste? Even in crisis we had to find ways of distracting ourselves from the tasks we had to do. Did we forget to bring everyday routines, or the way it made weekends something special? Anything can turn into a habit, and in the tedium of lockdown any little difference could seem extraordinary.
