I am thoroughly enjoying my fountain pen with royal blue ink. It makes writing letters and cards a little more special.
I am attempting to write a few letters, notes, and cards each week as a way to re-connect with a part of life that has gone “high-tech.” Not that high-tech is bad, but it leaves a “sterile” feel- and life is certainly not impersonal or sterile!
When I was a child, my mother would occasionally let me and my second sister buy a stationery set with color-coordinated papers and envelopes and stickers in a box. How I miss that and could use it now.
