Just reacquired a strong desire to spend all my disposable income on fountain pens, ink, and quality papers.  I've suffered from this malady in the past, but I've managed to control my enthusiasm so that it was not injurious to mental, marital, or economic well-being.  Hopefully, I'll be able to manage the same control this iteration.  My main interest currently is improving my handwriting, both print and cursive, and maybe getting into calligraphy in the near future.  I'm not really anti-social, but I'm definitely not gregarious, and I don't know much about anything, so I don't expect to be making a lot of posts.  That being said, I'm not shy, either, so I feel I can make a contribution I will do so, or if I have a burning question on a pertinent topic.

 

Cheers,

Patrick

Hello Patrick 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!
