The Treehouse + The Cave has a sibling in the physical world: my Moleskine notebook. An unexpected gift from Heather, I got it right about the time that this blog began. Ever since, we are inseparable. I carry it (in a pocket in my bag that I swear was designed for it) everywhere I go, often whipping it out mid-commute to write down a post in its most fetal stage. Nearly all my writings, inventions and drawings begin on its pages.

The Moleskine design is a classic, featuring (among many other wonderful details) lined or gridded pages, an expandable pocket in the back (for collection of random artifacts), and an elastic embedded into its back cover that acts as a closure and bookmark, it's been appreciated as such for nearly two centuries. Notebooks identical to mine have nurtured the thoughts of many European artists and intellectuals over the years, from Breton to Hemingway, and continue to find a home in studios globally. They're beautiful, they're affordable, and I promise you, the quality of the craftsmanship only helps to stimulate thoughts of equal value.

I know. Clearly I don't have as many writing degrees as you do.

Thanx Paige, I hadn't heard of Journalisimo, but I'll be adding its feed to NewsFire shortly. Along similar lines: Moleskinerie
