Remember when we wrote important stuff down on paper, then put said paper in one of those cardboard wallet’s only to file it all away in alphabetical order in those rattly grey steel filing cabinets? I do, because this still happens at my place of work. Probably something that’s very much alien within the technologically advanced multimedia landscape of Apple and Co.
With our work and social lives becoming increasingly logged, scheduled, and played out in digital form, the simple, effective and fundamentally satisfying exercise of putting pen to paper may soon become a rather unfashionable and obsolete means of record keeping. Not to me though. I’m one of the strange lot who still likes to write everything down. I find it creates a sense or order and clarity in my odd little mind that a Microsoft outlook task never will.
So if you believe in the sanctity of the written word and often find you’re at your most creative whilst contemplating your own existence in the bath, then go get yourself one of these mightily clever patented ‘Rite in the Rain’ notebooks from outdoor outfitters Filson, and become a decidedly average wordsmith like me.
