Last week, my wife was interviewed by an LIS student who asked for advice about professionalism at work. Afterwords, my wife tweeted:

So my question this week for y’all is:

How do you personalize your workspace? Do you have a workspace to personalize? If you had to pick one item you leave at work as symbolic of the way you establish your territory (a picture, a coffee mug, a piece of clothing) what would that item be? What story does that item tell about you and your relationship to your job?

As always, answer in comments, via Twitter, or email!
