It’s soaking wet (it’s been raining all day), a bit crumpled, and the dye from the cover is bleeding through to the first few pages… but I have one of my notebooks back.

I always assumed people would ignore the “Pertinent Coordinates” if they ever found a lost Field Notes book, but today I’ve found myself surprised by the kindness of strangers. There was no note left, but to whoever dropped it off at my front door: thank you.

A small gesture that improved my day. I’ll be sure to pass it along.
