Pencils on a Christmas tree (not under)

Some golden pencils on a Christmas tree twig

I have a Blackwing Volume description that brought some awesome looking pencils to my house. Like the 344 , the 1138 or the 725.

But the only thing to use these Trump:ish looking Blackwing 530 for seems to decorating a Christmas tree. Pity I don’t have one.

I don’t know: for me a golden pencil seems to be a contradiction in itself. But, of course, “de gustibus non est disputandum”.

My first Typecast

An old black typewriter on a wooden table

I enjoy reading typewriter blogs like Joe Van Cleave’s, Richard Polt’s or Robert Messenger’s (just to name a few). And so, for quite a while I thought about typecasting, but never had a real reason for it. Except, I have some typewriters that I use a lot.

But then, the book “S” by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst came along …

Well, I will see, if I will continue the book for now – there are so many more good books waiting …
