Edition Notes

As written by Gary: 
Pinecones have a deep and varied history of importance and symbolism across many cultures. To the Aztecs, they represented spirituality and immortality, while the Egyptians, through later interpretation, use pinecones as staff tips, symbolizing the pineal gland and the point in the body where energy culminates. The Celts saw pinecones as symbols of fertility and regeneration. In our bodies, nestled snugly in our brains between our so-called left-and-right personas, the pinecone-shaped pineal gland invokes endless intrigue in mysticism, known sometimes as our 'third eye,' 'dream center,' or 'mystic seed.' The Dapper Notes × Notegeist PINEAL exclusive notebook can be where you energize intentions, or give new ideas immortality from writing them down in a small, precious notebook.
