I have a gorgeous new journal.

In fact, I have had it since my birthday last September but I have been very cautious… OK actually frightened… and have barely written in it. It is warm brown, with creamy paper, my name is stamped on to the front cover and I love it. So much so that I have only admired it and not really embraced it. So I went searching for a worthy subject and found it at Davis Bay, a small patch of the most beautiful reddish pink Poppies.

From today on I’m just going to leap right in and use it up…
