Pictures of the new The Marin Foundation Offices

There have been some very new and very humbling things happening recently. One of which has been the full donation to The Marin Foundation of a substantial amount of office/class space! We just moved in a week and a half ago (and when you look at the pictures you’ll see we haven’t decorated yet), and it’s been unreal to have an actual private space that is ours! Here are some pictures, with descriptions below each picture:

(This is our private entrance. A sign is coming soon…)

(This is our conference/class space)

(My desk…and if you’ve read my book you’ll understand what the picutre frame on top of the desk is all about…)

    The last restaurant that I ate at in Chicago is just down the road from your office at 3001 N Ashland. It's an eastern European restaurant. Great food – try the goulash.

    I know, I know! (about the frame on top of your desk). The book was amazing! I really really enjoyed reading it, plus I got to read it almost completely in one sitting on the bus! I sure hope I end up coming to visit this summer. I’d love to talk more about everything.
