There must be a wide world outside this study.
Maybe I'll open the door and look out.
He opens the door and looks out. The rain is falling straight down in sheets. There's a kid running up and down the streets with a joy, joy, joy look on his face. (Imagine Snoopy in one of his feet-flapping dances.)
Without shutting the door, he returns to the study. He logs out, turns off the power, and unplugs all the hardware.
Be back soooon!

There's a pile of black and white photos in an envelope on the desk right here. And under them, there are some papers. And under them, some books I pulled off the shelf many months ago to read.
And there's a pile of papers and pamphlets and CDs in the corner of the desk that I don't know if I need. And in another corner, a basket of bills being handled by the accountant of the house.
There's a suitcase that needs to be packed, maybe two. There are backpacks that need to be found.
There are timers that need to be set. Computer equipment that needs to be unplugged. Plants that need to get a good soaking before they are left in the hands of the neighbors.
The dog knows that something is up. Who knows what the cat thinks.
A distant journey is about to begin.
