Traveling back in time, to the world of ink pots and pens with nibs. Very dear friends were in Venice recently and brought back a beautiful glass-handled pen for me, and I have set to learning to use it. Drawing is easy and delicate (and helped along with crayon colour); writing is an exercise in patience. Finishing a word before dotting and crossing is a foreign feeling for a perpetual scrawler like myself, but I so far have found that it makes one more deliberate with language – a necessity, when there is no deletion or erasure.
