Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Welcome, Ed !  

 

Writing by hand accesses a different area of the brain, than using a keyboard.  My know-it-all wife says it is the creative brain area.  I do know, however, that I like it.  Try playing music, when you write.  "Big Country", "The Magnificent Seven", "Ride of the Valkerie".

 

Sooooo, what did you get ?
