Sad, Sad Day in Travel Writing

No pictures or humor in this post (not that the ones before have been belly-busters [great term]). Over the years of travel and writing, I have learned a few golden rules. Among some of them are:

1. Always have a pen with you
2. Try to learn from everyone - whether that be a CEO of a powerful company or the dude watching cars on the street for pesos a day
3. Keep writing, even if it is an effort

These are a select few of my rules for myself. But I added one today: don't be careless with the mini journal you have been keeping for 4 months and writing in everyday to later make some interesting articles from (can you tell that this sentence was typed in about two seconds and a bit emotionally?). I was getting out of the bus this morning, and a nice older lady let me know that my little pocket notepad had slipped out of my back pocket. 'Thanks, ma'am.'

But then I put it right back into the same pocket it fell out of...and hence I no longer have the little gem of knowledge that I have built. Ouch. NOT happy right now.
