Here it is! The last entry in my Paris Journal:|
Saaad, now that it's over.
The whole thingamajob was drawn in this little homemade notebook:
I used thick cardboard for the cover, which I covered with a few pieces of fabric I had lying around, and then sew-bound the pages together with thick, waxed thread, reinforcing it all with duct tape. There were 40 pages, total, and I filled the whole book! I really recommend doing these for your own travels. Now I have this totally home-made book that will help me to remember the trip, years from now. It was hard to keep up with drawing and writing for an hour or two (almost) every day, while on vacation with John, but I'm glad I did it.
I'm traveling again, tomorrow, back home to New York for the wedding of my closest friend from my teen years. It rocks my world to have someone to whom I was so close, doing such a grown-up thing. It still feels like it was last week that we were staying up until four AM to watch old episodes of Kids in the Hall, and drawing conversations back and forth instead of doing our homework for math class the next morning.
(PS: I failed math, but drawing conversations back and forth turned out to be more important for my future career. Still, I sometimes wish I could remember what a "polynomial" is... NOT. Stay in school, kidz!)
It was lovely seeing/being fabulous with you. I left a message on your FB but then I realized that it's too trendy for you (hehe) so I'd be best to leave a message here.
Keep in touch girly!
Thanks, Lila! It was wonderful seeing you, too. Must do it more often!
