guest book

one of the coolest things i saw when i was on vacation was, yes, the guestbook. i don't know if it's because i'm a wannabe scrapbooker, but it had all the things in it that i try and preserve. what it actually was is a sketch book, and there were some absolutely incredible sketches, artwork, cartoon work, portraits, landscapes, and more. pencil crayon, pen, pencil, crayon, felt, whatever. adults and children were the artists, and from all different skill levels. and then their was the journalling. wow. in the dedication page they explained their family tradition of sharing your 'highs' and 'lows' of the day at the dinner table (we do this too!) and they asked you to leave your high and low of your vacation in the book. it was so cool to read them all. some of them were fun, some typical, some whacky, some were even sad (a death) and joyful (a birth). i took some pics, i had to! and of course, i left my own 'mahalo'.
