If you think about it, Sic parvis magna merely states the obvious…which is, “Men don’t know the obvious, and it takes some wise guy to concoct some wise line for them to be wisely reminded.”
“And preferably in Latin.”
With that in mind, I wanted to write something brutally terse for the first page of my new Moleskine. What I came up with on December 26 was far from a “lit piece”.
All the inaugural page declares is Phillip Kimpo / Ang Korsaryo, written in both Alibata and the Latin alphabet.
Was the European moleskine meant to dance with the Alibata script? No, and that made my “first page” all the more
mystical memorable for me. (Of course, you know that this is just an excuse for such hasty work).
In any case, once I got over the hump, the writings on the black notebook (sounds dramatic!) came like a deluge. Deluge, as in four works in the span of two weeks. Anyway, I’ll be posting some of my “Made on Moleskine” pieces here from time to time. I do hope that in my case, something great will actually sprout from the small!
