"We recently spent an wonderful break in Tuscany, staying a short distanceoutside Pienza. The countryside in that area is sublime. I’ve recently started the long training to become a Psychotherapist and part of that process is keeping a personal journal. My choice after a false start with the recommended A4 notebook was to turn to my faithful stock of Moleskines.In this case a large unlined. I write on the right hand page and draw, annotate and doodle on the left. Showing extraoridary (!) diligence as you can see I took my journal on holiday to catch up with my latest reflections.It was hard work but I guess somebody had to do it. The picture shows atable and benches in a small grove of trees, there was also a hammock nearby, where it was possible to read write in some shade and feel a refreshing breeze to alleviate the summer heat.
I find the colour of the pages is comforting on the eye and the blue ink I use in my Rotring ArtPen takes to the pages wonderfully, enabling me to write fluently and quickly. The tools don’t get in the way of the process. What more could I ask.
Whilst we were there I managed to score some Molekines at the equivalent of £8 each, when my local supplier prices at £14. Hurrah."
