Now let me tell you something surprising, I love traveling by myself. Spending time in train stations and airports, moving quietly through those strange spaces, that odd feeling of time suspended within. I find it restful. The feeling of bustle and purpose, people moving here and there like busy ants. I especially like the airports. I love the feeling of having all I need packed in my bag and the freedom to sit and wait. To read my book and watch the people. I have fond memories of sitting quietly in airport lounges sipping coffee and feeling, for a little while, as though I am living someone else's life.
I do not own a Kindle but if I was still commuting by train or living a jet set life I can quite see the advantage of having all those books in one little package. So when I designed my Kindle case I knew that it would need a pocket.
Because there is very rarely a time when you don't need a pocket.
This pocket is perfect for a travel card or plane ticket, I would pop my passport in and maybe a bank card. Keeping my essentials neatly to hand whilst waiting in queues and reading of love, murder and intrigue. I would feel comfortable knowing that once in my seat I had all that I needed right there, no need to disturb the person next to me by getting up to rummage overhead. I would feel ready to go anywhere.
But back to Suffolk, where the rain still falls, the smell of wet dog is ever present in my house and Suffolk is as green as I have seen it. Bluebells nod heavily in the damp, grassy woods and the rape grows tall and bright, its acid yellow shines bright and modern against the steel grey skies. A thousand shades of green seem to light up the landscape and the blossom and content as I am, every so often I let my mind wander to an airport somewhere and all the possibilities.
The Kindle cases are available in my Etsy shop or Not On The High Street and many thanks to Tracy of the lovely Dragonflies blog for being my very first Kindle case customer and mentioning it so sweetly in her blog post here, here
