I believe that the ritual of writing in a journal or diary is very important device for expressing and creating. There is something calming about getting your thoughts down on paper. I have found it to relieve stress and offer me a new perspective on my life and emotions. Writing in a diary is also a very personal and sacred thing and I have always carefully chosen my journals. I have bought many beautiful books throughout the years and the few plain ones I have owned have been quickly decorated. That is my real goal for Das Buch: to provide beautiful vessels for your innermost thoughts, a small luxury to provide a moment of calm amidst our busy lives.
