While on "holiday" or travelling, I tend to gather bits of paper...business cards from restaurants and artists, gallery and city guides, newspaper clippings , etc. In order to have some sort of hardcopy souvenir of places been and seen, I glue the cuttings into unlined journals from the Dollar Store. I've found, however, that it's hard to keep up with the cutting, gluing, sorting, arranging and marginal note-making so I usually end up with a bag full of papers and clippings to sort out once I'm back home. This situation results in a pile of stuff sitting on my desk for months (dare I say years?), awaiting my careful ministrations. By the time I finally get back to the pile, the memories have faded and it's difficult to put it all into some semblance of order. A pleasure has turned into a task.
Enter the Moleskine. My daughter gave me this little book and it seems the perfect solution because it's small.
Small is beautiful @ 3.5 x 5.5 inches.
