Sewing the pages into my travel journal. Attaching tabs in no logical order. Searching for long elastic loops with the barbed ends. I want to make a simple loop closure around a fabric button I’ve decided. Like the one my Kindle has. Except I can’t find the elastic loops anywhere. Was thinking maybe you, resourceful reader, would know…? I’ll add the closure when I return from Istanbul.
In the meantime, I’ll be busy adding more tabs while watching back to back episodes of Mad Men.
Nearly every surface of this journal has been laminated with tape. I like to know that if I drop it in the Black Sea it will not disintegrate before my sister has a chance to don her mask and flippers and dive down to retrieve it. That thought makes me feel secure. I like feeling secure. When I’m not feeling reckless, that is.
Something opened in the garden today. A pink gift.
