Aryanna just got her first Moleskine this year thanks to her Dad. Tom couldn’t remember who gave him the “Artists Wanted” Moleskine but when our daughter asked for it, he couldn’t say no. Moleskine is a great brand for designers, artists, and travelers because the durability that it guarantees your writing. It can preserve your writing for years! Perfect for Aryanna’s teenage thoughts!
I wish I could share with you my daughter’s diaries. I never (may lightning strike me now) read them unless she wants me to. She shares with me some of the pages in her diaries — her rants, doodles, collages, poems, and songs she and her friend Mikah wrote. They are special. One day, if she’ll allow me, I will blog about her music and her stories.
Anyway, since she was 6 yrs old, she’s been keeping a diary. This year, she graduated from cutesy diaries to Moleskine. Lagot, ang mahal. Haha! Oh well, one can’t put a price on art. I look forward to Aryanna’s stories and music. I hope she’ll share it one day with the world. I’m crying now so I better stop.
I love seeing her grow into the lady that she is! Eventually, her dad’s gift can let her love the journey herself…when she reads the pages again in the future. Sigh. Now excuse me, I need to go emote again. Oh how fast they grow!
I asked Aryanna if I could share a page of her diary on my website and here’s what she showed me:
