Here is a transcript of the words on the cover:
All of these words and all of these pictures and these small scraps of purpose and intention and dreams will walk alongside of me and keep me company on this my great journey and will serve to remind me to savour all my days spent upon this earth.
What makes this cover so very special is that this is how I write letters. When I come to the bottom, I somehow do not turn the page but continue up the side and around the top and back down the other side. Don't ask me why - it just happens!
And here are these wonderful 'word bells' on the inside of the cover.
This bell will ring when the leaves fall
This bell will ring when people say that we are boring
This bell will ring when from nothing something comes
This bell will ring when I am cruel to you and make you cry
This bell will ring when we touch in the dark
This bell will ring when you take me in your arms and hold me
Although the notebook is mine, I offer, to you all, the sentiments of these words, on the cover and just inside, for the coming year and may it be all that it needs to be for each one of you xx
