An exercise in gratitude #6 :: Moleskine Desk Calendar

I'm grateful to Olly for giving me this luxurious novelty... a day-to-a-page desk calendar from Moleskine.

The moleskine cover adds a sense of transience to the calendar... and reminds me of all the fab "leather goods" gentlemen used to have when they travelled in the late 19th century, if you know what I mean?

I have an extra large Moleskine diary / notebook on order to complement it. Whilst I am a huge fan of my iPhone & use it to keep my "todo" list on it (using Behance's Action Method app) ... I do like paper & pen for planning my day. For me Moleskine's are a luxury... and whilst they've become almost a cliche... I'm still a big fan... even if I have to tape the odd spine with Squash Racquet tape. Tx

I got one of those as well. Looking forward to having it on my desk.

Ian... good for you... would love to see a pic of it on your desk!

There is something absurd and counter-intuitive about it. The whole premise is to remove pages which goes against the whole ethos of protection that I have with my previous Moleskines.

Also wondering what to do with the shell when its finished.
