Worldwide myDetour project.

I noticed that today is the last day of the myDetour Project's San Francisco stop.

myDetour?

Basically, Moleskine organizes drop boxes in various ciites where Moleskine artist and writers (that's all of us) are invited to view the traveling archive and submit their own Moleskine creations.

With previous stops in New York, Paris, Berlin, Milan and Istanbul, myDetour brings along- together with the drop boxes - a collection of sketches, writings and drawings created by visual artists, writers, designers, creative people of all sorts from past myDetour editions around the world.

The theme of the 2009 myDetour in San Francisco is "District of You" - a tribute to the familiar places and an invitation to find the extraordinary side of your ordinary surroundings.


Can't make it to San Fran today?

Whether you’re in the Bay Area and preparing to submit your notebook to the myDetour program or elsewhere and just want to express your creativity, Moleskine invites you to participate in the Chronicle Books "District of You" contest

we would like to see your sketches, drawings, photos, or thoughts on your personal "places of inspiration." Where do you find your creativity? How do your surroundings inspire you? Simply scan your Moleskine notebook and post your images on our Flickr Group. Five submissions will be chosen at random to receive a special gift from Moleskine.

The next myDetour stop will be in Tokyo, 16 oct - 4 nov

For more information on myDetour, visit www.moleskine.com/mydetour/sfo.

I love that line: a tribute to familiar places and an invitation to find the extraordinary side of your ordinary surroundings.

My fellow Knights, don't forget that this blog, too, is a tribute to familiar places and an invitation to find the extraordinary side of your ordinary surroundings. It's easy to post writings, photos, and even videos. We all look forward to your sketches, drawings, photos, stories....

Ditto on Sir D's comment to Booster! I am blowin' with the wind for several weeks. I will be out of town as long as our England trip, but this time for business, several cities in Florida, Columbus, OH and Chicago before I land my bags back home on October 11. Already day 5 of Sir Hook's Traveling Medicine Show.

So, I could write a whole Moleskine on myDetour....if I had the time. I'll try to chime in as time allows.

Cheerio!
