inspiration, to-dodocument {2}

to-do: document my daily life through a paper notebook.

I guess this blogs acts like a make-believe journal, but I really want to put everything into a paper notebook.

I have one started on the first of september – and kept for three months – that records small happenings through words, photos, paperclips, and drawings.

I have another one with only words and drawings. it lasted one month. january.

now, I just find myself too busy to take the time to sit down and write/print/draw. but after seeing Angela’s notebook, I felt so inspired.

she has the most lovely stop-motion film too (thanks Jeska).

journal, to-dobook {4}


a timeless moment at the Clarendon.

to-do: write a cookbook.

I think I have just found the perfect place to get the writing done. a café/restaurant/bar right down my street.
I cosily seat on one of the padded benches, get my moleskine and papermate pen from my bag, order a latte, then let the magic happen.

I love it there.

don’t you find it easier to work outside from home?

to-do: buy a vw van, and travel around New Zealand and the world.

at the moment, this is our wildest dream. we’re saving money. he’s better at this than I am. it seems I can’t keep my hands off the beautiful British cookbooks.

to-do: build a fort and live in it for a month.

what is on your to-do list today? short term list involves a lot of napping, blog reading, and cake making. long term is still a little secret.

salvation moutain

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::(image by jaynonymous)

I’ve been thinking about the utter meaning of life lately. a self-imposed dissertation to figure out the ins and outs was even written today.

as a result, I’ve found out that:
1) I should probably refrain my determination to make my life how I want it to be, in order to truly enjoy the things I already have.
2) I should list everything I want.

the first idea that came to my mind was salvation moutain. although my factual mind forbids me to believe in anything bar mathematics and physics, I have the feeling this place might be one of the most inspiring ever.

what do you want to do before it gets too late?
