New Moleskine Journal

…………………………………………………………………………………………
Oh the joy of bringing home a brand new Moleskine Large Notebook with graphing paper. Shrink wrapped in its own beauty.

Removing the plastic shrink wrap is like unfurling a treasured memento, stashed in a cedar chest in the attic, wrapped in swaddling velvet. Lifting it from its cradle of honor, smelling it, kinesthetically caressing its cover, fingering through the pages.

The joyous sensation of popping loose the elastic enclosure strap for the first time. Hearing the tantalizing crackly creak of the binding as it is exhumed from its dormancy.

O the pager marker, like a little companion in my Moleskine adventures. How I have missed thee. In my previous Moleskine Large Reporter Notebook with graphing paper, I did not have a trusty page maker. Alas, an inconvenient struggle it was. But now, like an old friend reminding me of where we have been before. I open up my Moleskine again, and again, page after page. We begin new adventures together, on every blank page.
