I have lots of thoughts about pens, thanks for asking! I made the leap to a fountain pen in January, and haven't looked back. It is THE BEST for morning pages. I need something inky, smooth, and fast drying (leftie probs). I was intimidated by fountain pens for the longest time because they seemed like a lot of work, but my Lamy Safari has been easy to maintain so far. I love being able to just buy an ink refill and not tossing a whole pen in the trash. (That said, I still keep Pilot G-2's on hand, and use a Uniball Signo in my Hobonichi.)
I’m new here and your comic brought me so much joy! I recently pulled Lynda’s book Syllabus back out and there it sits on my nightstand table, mocking me. And regarding bedtime — I somehow thought they would be easier as my daughter grew up, and here she is at almost 9 and it’s possibly worse than ever. But I think that has more to do with not getting a break for the past many months due to quarantine than bedtime in general. My brain has floated off to some amazing destination...hope to find it again someday. Off to check off your links!
