Ocean of Words...


I bought a Moleskine journal. And I am pretty excited about it. I have been wanting to purchase this journal for a long time.

"For two centuries now Moleskine has been the legendary notebook of European artists and intellectuals, from Van Gogh to Henri Matisse, to Pablo Picasso....and Ernest Hemmingway."

You know, I realize that it is all selling technique, but I feel more artistic just for owning one. Yikes. Honestly, its' great because I can carry it in my bag, and just start writing anywhere. Which I have already done. And it turns out - Moleskine has a following. People using them to travel the world, pass them around, and record ideas. There is even a blog dedicated to it. I love that I get to be a part of that. Cheesy but true.

The title of my first reflection: "How Teachers Make Children Hate Reading". I read a great article about it. I am guessing no one is truly interested, so I wont write about it on here. But if you are - lets talk about it sometime.

The creative process of the true writer/artist begins in a leather bound, artistic journal of love, such as your new Moleskine. Buy a beret, sip a coffee, write with a fountain pen...be amoungst the "greats". The "Southern Bell" is tolling, the "starry night" awaits, and the creative spirit rises. I'm glad I know you.
