The Drop In Journal Book, one friend calls it
The Repository. It's a place to toss in
various photos, clippings & cards.
Another blogger friend who inspired this post
calls them "Odds & Ends".
My own notes & sketches mixed in with
images of others...
Patterns to what I collect emerge...
I seem to be fond of grids & squares & rectangles.
This has been going on for years.
A beautiful card from a special someone...
It could be filed in my box of received cards.
But it needs to be here because of the image.
Some photos & sketches
of my old Christmas card designs.
Some rough draft remains from
The Language Exchange logo.
(Not all of the pages are grids and squares.)
Images of postage stamps.
I had tossed a bunch that I'd kept in a box,
& preserved some in the book.
More little squares, little charts.
For my naturally nonlinear brain
they are soothing.

On the right, someone's paintings from a magazine
(I should have recorded the artist's name.)
More of my notes & sketches,
mixied in willy nilly to the Drop In Journal Book.
This book is just about filled, & I have a new one,
also coptic stitched, standing by!
