Pas de deux.

  View on Instagram https://ift.tt/2qdpNbu   When the autumn rains start, I spend a lot of time looking down at the ground, looking for droplets on fallen leaves, watching out for slugs and worms. Sometimes I’ll talk myself out of a photograph because it doesn’t seem interesting enough, and then I’ll stop right in theContinue reading “Pas de deux.”

Day 366 of Project 365: Last snap.

As 2016 ends, so does this round of Project 365. I am relieved on both counts, although I will miss how the act of sharing a daily photo kept me connected with faraway loved ones. Thank you for being here; your presence meant a lot to me during this very challenging year. I’m excited toContinue reading “Day 366 of Project 365: Last snap.”

Day 363 of Project 365: Turning the page.

Tonight I turned the page to peek at 2017. It looks so clean and new from here. I am sure 2016 looked much the same, last December 28th. Is it foolish to look forward to a symbolic fresh start?

Day 362 of Project 365: Fireblue.

Here is my first Kaweco, a Liliput Fireblue, which is one of the smallest fountain pens — less than four inches long when capped! Each pen is hand-torched by Kaweco CEO Michael Gutberlet to give it the distinctively mottled steel finish. I’m looking forward to putting it through its paces in future ink tests! viaContinue reading “Day 362 of Project 365: Fireblue.”
