well, not really the first day of school, I’m 29 actually…
but september has always been the month of school new year beginning…
and it always has meant new stationery!!! I love stationery! entering in a
stationer’s it’s an exciting moment to me, every time, just as the sensation of entering
in a supermarket when I go abroad! ok, maybe we have to talk about this…
not now, today we are talking about the emotion of buying a new pen, a strange pencil,
a vintage ruler, a special pencil case, a stamp… and of course, the sensation of writing
on the first blank page of a new diary, notepad, moleskine, drawing block
or everything you like…
the first thing I do when I buy a new journal is paste my ex-libris on the first
page, writing my name and information on the second page…
and then smelling the pages…
once I found this sentence on a school diary of mine:
a journal is a journal as a year is a year.
is what you put in it, the journal and the year, that makes the difference.
ever since then I have started every diary with this sentence,
as a reminder and a lucky charm!
