Ah, spring has finally sprung – the “freshness” of renewal and new arrivals. A spirit of optimism and hope prevails as the seasons change from dark to light. Enough already, I am not a poet (although my feet may show it, they are Longfellows!).
Back to pens – what has recently arrived in the mail or is on the wish list to dream or lust about or maybe just the thrill of the hunt – ebay, discussion boards, antique shows and shops or best of all, a heavenly pen show. Or maybe, just maybe the children or spouse of a member will find this page bookmarked or left on screen so that they could check out this list as a shopping guide for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthday, anniversary, or just because day.
