Glad to be here. I write a lot in correspondence (domestic/international). I appreciate the digital age and its handiness at times, but tangible written correspondence needs to continue. Getting back into written correspondence improved my penmanship, which I hadn't anticipated. Oh happy day! This and the love of snail mail made me dust off my ink dip nibs. —Then started the love affair of calligraphy and ink!
A few months ago one of my correspondents in Colorado challenged me to try fountain pens. Just for trial purposes I got two. So here I am venturing into pen and paper alike... I have more paper than fountain pens! I've been planning to attend a pen show, alas the weather might keep me from attending. But I'd like my next fountain pen to have a good deal of flex in the nib, as I so love my ink dip nibs too.
I enjoy the craft of tangible writing and love to learn new things. Happy to be here and glean from the knowledgeable folk.
