Moleskine entry: January 5th, 2011
I have a new Moleskine.
This makes me happy.
So. Plans for the year then? I have two. Travel and dance. Doing more of both. The former I’m working on, the latter also.
I guess if I’m completely honest with myself, one underlying goal for the year ahead would be not to share as much. For the last two years (more so than before at least) I’ve lived my life openly, on the internet – and decorated it accordingly. In the same way that one would in his own house, I shared my happiness, my joy and my deepest loves on the walls around me.
If it made me smile, or if I thought it would do the same for someone, else then I shared it. But now…?
Now the largest piece of that puzzle has disappeared and, whenever I visit this place I once called home, it is not long before I wander into a memory of times gone past. It’s not like I can even show people around; an image here, a link there, an oblique reference off to the right – it happens.
This year, whatever comes my way, I’ll be keeping a fair amount of it back (more than I did before at least anyway).
For now, that’s how things have to be.
