in this age of technology..... a lot of folks are busy sending texts, shooting off emails, leaving blog comments (love that srsly i do!), status updates on facebook, twitter reminders etc, etc. i am guilty of all the above (and there's nothing wrong with it!) - but i miss putting it down on good old fashioned paper. i love taking pen (particularly a new black super fine sharpie - don't even get me started on how much i miss my expresso pens - why don't they make them any more?!) to paper. i feel more committed to the task if i write it down. i love making my to do lists and the joy of crossing off the items once they are accomplished. sure that "to do" list usually mocks me on a daily basis as it grows bigger and not smaller. but i guess my point is for me, i need my filofax stuffed with receipts, photos of my daughter, scraps of paper, postcards, a handwritten card from my beloved mom. i love my stacks of notebooks and journals filled with thoughts, reminders, places i want to go shoot. they may take away all the magazines i love but they won't take away my beautiful handmade paper linen bound journal i bought in rome or my $1.99 fabulously cool target journal.
