Joining is my 2018 theme. I usually prefer to hide in the shadows. I spend quite a bit of time on this site watching all the fun. It's time I joined in so here I am.

I have several starter pens, jinhaos, preppys, platinum desk pens, pilot penmanship, metros and parallels. I prefer very fine Japanese nibs.

I like to take pens apart to fix them and often end up 'fixing them' for good.

I live dangerously and mix my inks.

I will write practice sentences repeatedly just to play with my pens.

I look forward to meeting everyone.

Peace

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 Anna !

 

On my tenth birthday, I was given a new watch, which I took apart before first wearing.  All the parts, save one, are in an heirloom box, to remind me that "fixing" is not my calling.  I have 100 functioning, vintage fountain pen, none of which were restored by yours-truly.  Maybe, someday, I will try again. 

 

Write with joy.
