I have no explanation for it.

Been in Cape May, New Jersey the last few days.

It's pretty cold this go around so we took in the beach from afar.

What a fun place this would be for a meet-up!

I brought all my Filoprenalia with me (of course!) and even though there's no Filofax retailers around here I managed to find something I had to have...But I'll get back to that...

These are the curtains in my room.

Remind you of anything?

My BFF

I can't wait to get a look at the new 2013 Filofax line  and eagerly anticipate  images of sparkling new binders as people receive them...

Portland filofax and cross pen

As each new video pops up I'll watch it, probably a dozen times, and go back and forth about ordering it; should I or shouldn't I?  But....

Could I  love a new one more then my old, ragged best Filofax forever (BFF)?    True, there is something magical about newness with it's promise of endless possibility. 

Untitled

But would newness make me happier than my soft, flawed, comfortable as old shoes binder?  As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.

Feel the anxiety and do it anyway!

About a week ago I took most everything out of my Filofax to see what I really, really needed in there.  It's great to carry the world with you but it takes up a lot of ring real estate.   So at the moment it's pretty much calendar pages and some addresses.

I did a page by page video this morning because..... A. It's still pretty  full and B.  I haven't done one in a while.

This week I gave myself a goal to use up the office supplies I already have before buying anything new.  It's hard for me to use some of it, I mean Holy! Cow! What if I can't find it again???

But I'm going ahead with it...  Feeling the anxiety and doing it anyway.  At least that's the plan.
