Ooo, nice blue. Now that I'm all about the blue may I ask what it is . . . ?

 

Umm, the color may not be reproduced very faithful here, I fear (you can tell that the lighting on the paper was pretty uneven). That said - it's Sailor Seiboku blue black pigment ink (in a brand new Pelikan Souverän M805 black blue silver with M nib).

Phew. I thought I was going to have to add another to the list. Sebuku is lovely but trashed one of my pens when I forgot about it. You make it look lovely . . .

Thanks! It certainly is (the very nice nib might have helped some, too ...)

Took a bit more care with the color this time, in turn let some creatively malformed letters stand (no, that's no spelling error in the third line - neither in the fifth).

I'm at work so no access to writing and photo'ing... but

Epic... that's Lord Epic to you, or LE for short.   :P
 
A sincere man am I
From the land where palm trees grow,
And I want before I die
My soul's verses to bestow.
 
All those moments will be lost in time.
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.

Enjoy the ink, but what's the pen?


Yours,
Randal

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

Thanks. The pen is a Parker 45 with a right footer oblique broad italic, nib code Z. Nice nib but I prefer the standard broad italic, nib code E.

Beautiful writing.

I thought that the ink was Pelikan Edelstein Mandarin until I saw the postscript.

 

Cheers, David.

There is no fanciness to my handwriting, but as an ultramarathoner this is one of my favourite quotes and beautifully describes how it feels to lose yourself along some remote mountain trail amongst the peaks.
