Photo Friday: Obsession.

My Photo Friday entry this week, Obsession: a stack of Moleskines, out back on the balcony (really a deck with a view) on a nicely warm Southern Illinois morning, promising a nice weekend. Nice enough for a hike perhaps? We still might get some rain tonight and have gotten a lot of it in recent weeks, but I don't really care about getting muddy at Giant City State Park. With the way the area is designed to draw water through the park, I cannot say I have ever been there when it was not muddy. Hell, the reason it exists at all is because of the water that flowed down this way when the glacers of the last ice age melted and slunk across the landscape. Rather than getting flattened like the rest of Illinois, our tiny corner here stayed hilly and earned itself some spectacular sandstone bluffs. I'll just hike in Tevas and wear flip-flops in the car on the way home. This, of course, depends on getting enough work done today, on the weather holding out, on getting enough sleep tonight, etc. We'll see. I have not gotten out of the car anywhere in the National Forest since before the new year, though in my defense, I was also out of town for a while and between cars and am terribly behind in my work. It would be nice to get outside, but then again, Juliette Binoche's new movie opens today...

I still haven't filled the moleskin that was given to me, and for that I am sorry.

No worries, bro. I didn't send it to you with a deadline:)

Very cool choice for Obsession :)
I like the way you chose to display the moleskins, how they're stacked
