I’m excited to have my first guest contribution from another SLP!
Elizabeth Wells Bihn has written a series of haiku for the blog, starting with this one.
I love her reflection on a desk. Hers (like mine) calls for and supports creativity.
Want to some support for your messy desk habit? According to a 2013 experiment by Vohs, Redden, and Rahinel, a mess can support creativity.
