Exploring Analog Comforts in a Digital World


It has been quiet here over the past couple of months. Part of the reason for that it has been a hectic time at work, but the other reason is my (unexpected) new hobby: Fountain Pens.

I know, I know if you had told me a few months ago that I (a guy with notoriously bad penmanship) was going to get wrapped up in a hobby that involves so much handwriting, I would have said you were crazy. Still, in 2020, everything is upside down, and here we are.

In the next couple of weeks, I may explain how I got into my pen hobby, but I wanted to make this milestone post first. I call it a milestone since it is the first post I initially drafted by hand, using one of my notebooks. 2020 is crazy.
