The first book of Albion

Inspired by the book of lost things by John Conolly (i recommend the book to really everyone out there) and Pete Doherty's "Books of Albion" i started creating my very own book of lost things. I used to be very wistful about the fact of having all my pictures saved on the computer screen, but not in anything like a photo album. I felt panic when thinking about "what if someone steals my notebook or it gets broken and all of this will be lost, what's with all my memories then?" But as i cannot simply order +500 pictures to be printed i am using another method now (apart from this blog ;) ). I always kept everything as memory. They are in every edge of my room, old tickets, postcards, notes, photographs ... all unsorted. I bought an empty book, collected all these lost things and started memorizing my life in this book. And in many years when i am very old i will hold this book in my hands and take a trip down in memories of my wonderful life with its highs and its lows. And so it is, and hopefully will continue to be, wonderful and beautiful.
