Empty Desk

I found this note taped to the front door.
Gigs left it there before leaving for school early this morning.

The state of his room can only be described as chaotic.
There are 40 different projects taking place simultaneously, 
each occupying its own spot in the room.
But I don't think he thinks it's messy.
Its art.
It's creative.
To him, it's organized-ish.

I was reminded of photos of Einstein's desk in 1955, the day after he died.
It was a mess, too.
Papers, books, manuscripts, magazines, piles, 
journals, photos, and writings strewn all over his desk.
It reminds me of Gigs.
Einstein said:
“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, 
then what are we to think of an empty desk?”
