a conundrum

have you ever received something so beautiful you're not quite sure what to do with it?

my wedding dressmaker (who designed and sewed me the most amazing wedding dress i could imagine) made ben and i small leather journals personalized with our initials as a thank you for choosing her.

and i absolutely love mine.

the only problem has a finite number of pages and i can't decide what is special enough to write in it.

my journal is already digital (and totally password protected).

i thought about recording ideas for shows and titles in it, but it seems too lovely for brainstorming.

what do you think? how would you use it?

"i was born in 1928. same year as mickey mouse, but he made out better - straight to hollywood, straight to the cosmetic department. i did not approve of his buying into all that crap and letting his soul get despoiled."

"it's hard to be happy. some people have the gift of pulling themselves up and out and saying there is more to life than just tragedy. and then there are those who can't, and i'm one of them. do you believe it when people say they're happy?"
