(2016) At this point I began keeping hand drawn day diaries…there is little real writing or drawing to share in this scruffy, well worn pocket book. Names and addresses of all connections, painstakingly, copied out into the back of everyone of these ‘book best friend’s that follow. A single-minded, female traveller needs nos. to call. They were precious. A pretty, far flung lot! I began experimenting with keeping a parallel writing book. The next one in the pile.
This gallery of endless lists will gives a real sense of the type of world I inhabited back then! So many mini adventures recalled. So many tales waiting to be born again.
