Oh So Close...

Interesting that the hit counter is close to 1,000 and I'm almost to the end of my first Moleskine notebook. (Okay, interesting to me.) Its review time as I ponder the potential of the new Moleskine that sits - unopened - on my night stand. Will it have that new Moleskine smell? Will I use the stickers? What the hell is the purpose of the stickers? Should I be so concerned with the stickers?

Much of the book holds observations; many of them have been posted here. Some of my favorites are:

100 (Plus 1) Things About Me (can you say narcissistic?)
Draw Outside the Lines - From Now On
Mother's Day
White Women Can't Dance
Sisss Boom Bah
(received my first comment)
You Know its Time to Go On a Diet When
A Prayer for My Dearest Friends

Some of the other stuff includes:

The "100 People I know" list. It started out as a tool to build a client base when I was toying with the idea of building an Arbonne business. I have a specific thing I want to accomplish before I do that, but the exercise has been so interesting that I kept it up. So far, I've come up with 44 people I know directly.

John Thornell, PhD's quote, "True bravery is: Arriving home stinking drunk after a very late night out with the boys...Then, being assaulted by your wife with a broom; and still having the guts to ask, 'Are you cleaning, or were you flying somewhere?'" I have no idea where I picked that one up, but I thought it was funny enough to keep - I still do.

Ideas for a bed & breakfast specifically for filmmakers.

Many "To Do" lists. (some of it got done)

Many grocery lists. (all of that got purchased and eaten)

My quote - "How close to on-time your flights are...is directly proportional to how badly you want to get home."

This little $10.00 notebook is one of my favorite possessions. It has a place to put your address and a reward amount, should you loose it and want it back. This one has a $20.00 reward. I think the next one will have a $50.00 reward.

Why so much for the next one? The nearly full Moleskine holds the dreams. The unopened Moleskine could be the potential to realizing them.
