Hello! Way back, through the mists of time, at the beginning of March 2016 I received an exciting package from my friend Yoko.
i’ve got mail – yay!
It was the next instalment in our MUJI notebook exchange. Opening a newly received notebook is always like opening a mystery door, or dimension hopping. Turning the pages of this notebook with excitement, I discovered a snowy white owl passing over the psychedelic mushroom territories of the mourillos…
… and into the cool, mossy half-light of an enchanted forest.

As always Yoko has woven a tale, cast a spell. The forest is an enigma, full of signs… and portals to other worlds.
I’ve been getting lost in the woods… and I love it!
