The Ultimate Gift
A Journal that Inspires Writers and Others To More Glorious Memories

As a writer I was immediately drawn to this lovely journal; it felt as essential for inspiration as the feel of a pen between one’s fingers. And, though this journal isn’t specifically designed for those who love to travel, it will work well for that process, too.
I am a traveler, too, one who does it because have a fundamental need to connect with other cultures and other times. This journal, will work equally well for those who simply want to record the observations they make as they journey from place to place.
Because of its versatility My Inner Pilgrimage Journal is a notebook that will make a perfect gift for writers (and others, too!). It features lovely quotations from Lao Tzu to Emerson, photographs gleaned from the work of assorted artists with lenses, tabs marked with thought-provoking titles like “the road less traveled,” and convenient pockets. The paper, true the publishers’ (Ryland and Peters) quality, is a joy to touch. This is a gift that could only be made more personal with an inscription from you, and, perhaps, a single pressed flower from your heart to that of whomever receives it.
Like any good book–and this is a book as well as a place to journal–My Inner Pilgrimage Journal may be purchased in bookstores or online. It is easily found by using its ISBN (1841725196) as an identifier when using online bookstores’ search features. Please take the time to look up this treasure. It is sure to touch any writer on your holiday list.
