you’re searching. you’ve turned your room upside down. for just one sheet of paper. with words you’ve forgotten that you’d like to remember.
this is the reason why you depend on notebooks. they don’t get accidently trashed like loose sheets.
however it also leads to an abnormally high stack of notebooks in your room.
your thoughts are everywhere. these books keep you sane.
this is the area where all your ideas go. your projects. your inspirations. your quotes. your friends. your portraits. your recipes. your vocabulary. they flow from the head to the heart to the hand to the pen to the ink to the paper.
some are spiral bound. some are staple bound. some have ribbons. some are pocket sized. small were started years ago. some were started a week ago. none of them finished.
and that is one thing that bothers you about the digital age for online journals (or, as most of the world like to say: blog). there is no last page or back cover to signify an end. it just continues. and continues. and continues…. until you decide what the last page will be.
