Lurker Turned Account-Holding Lurker
Posted 15 March 2019 - 03:47
Having used fountain pens regularly for 6 to 7 years, and visited FPN for the equal amount of time, I figure it would not be a bad idea to start being an actual member of the community. Having said that, I'm likely to be just as much a lurker, as my experiences with fountain pens have largely been limited to the few I own, and I have much to learn from the gurus here.
I started using fountain pens because they look cool. I'm shallow.
Thanks for reading my mindless rumblings!

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!

None of us knows how long he shall live or when his time will come. But soon all that will be left of our brief lives is the pride our children feel when they speak our names.
