Looking at the things I can do on this blog, I started thinking, “What is my goal? Why do I want to blog about fountain pens and other stationary?” I found my answer relatively quickly: I enjoy the act of writing with a fountain pen or other good writing product on good paper, and IContinue reading “That age old question, Why?”
Ya, not much to say, it is a migraine day. Jinhao Centennial and Hong Dian Dark Blue Forest.

This gold ink is from a old bottle that was given to me along withContinue reading “The Pens of October 31st, 2020”
