On Midori Traveler's Notebook (Passport) and my fascination for pens and paper

Never in my lifetime has my fascination for writing instruments reached this level, not even comparable to my childhood days when I would find any pen and paper to practice on my signature after I had read about John Hancock's curlicues or scribble whatever came to mind, even in the back pages of Childcraft encyclopedia, much to my aunts' dismay. As any fountain pen user would claim, the fascination begins with an entry-level pen—say, a Lamy Safari, still one of my favorite writing instruments—followed by a growing interest in inks and paper. Such is the natural history of this obsession.

A few days ago I ordered a Midori Traveler's Notebook (passport size) through Scribe's online store. After reading about it, I learned that there's a cult following of sorts—an entire community of creative individuals whose passion it is to take journaling to a whole new level. Search for "Midori Traveler's Notebook" or "MTN" in Instagram or Flickr to see what I'm talking about.

I keep mine simple—the passport size makes it convenient enough to bring it around, to scribble for when I need to remind myself of my to-do list, and to eventually use for my daily quiet times with the Lord. For now, I'm still using the old journals and notebooks I had acquired or received as gifts from friends.
