I am thankful for the generosity of the online community. I know that social media has been on trial and that platforms like Instagram are not perfect. But I have “met” some lovely people online. One such person sent me this beautiful fountain pen. I am a fountain pen novice and it has been fun to play around. I ordered a sample set of ink to try out. Dad loved fountain pens. He had beautiful handwriting and taught himself calligraphy. It has been fun to think about him as I begin my own exploration with pen and ink. I am still learning so for now, I will keep using my favorite pens in my notebooks. Maybe my 2021 notebook will feature more fountain pen scratchings.
