The last entry for this notebook – goodness! Lasts are always a bit sad. This notebook has been a great companion. I remember when I found it last spring at Jarir Bookstore. I love the old world feel of the maps on the cover. The fact that they are focused on the Middle East is perfect. It is hard to get used to having to use it upside down, but upside down is preferred to backwards. (Arabic is read from right to left therefore the notebooks sold here are setup that way.)
This notebooks feels like my first really regular notebook. It is the journey in these pages that I committed to writing with my students. It is this notebook that saw the commencement of my writing blog. I have had other notebooks I have written in (many, actually), but this one stands out as a writer’s notebook.
I wasn’t to pause here, a page before the end, to take time and sit with these words – to soak in these pages.
OK. This notebook has earned its place on the shelf next to me. Time to start a new one.
