The Chicago Cubs won the World Series! Somehow this “Westworld” quote seemed appropriate. Practicing my wonky g’s with some Pelikan Edelstein Amethyst in my Conklin All-American. Writing from: my study in Portland, Oregon. Listening to: November rain. Not the GnR song.
This nasty little cold is all-consuming so all I’ve got today is doodling of a line from the musical “Hamilton” that I have been enamored with since last October. Inks: Noodler’s Apache Sunset & Diamine Ancient Copper Pens: Conklin All-American (1.1mm italic nib) & Esterbrook Dollar Pen (broad nib) Paper: Midori Traveler's Notebook Refill 013 (Lightweight Paper) Writing from: my study. Listening to: I bet you can guess.

(This photo-a-day project is handy because now I know how much ink my Conklin All-American holds, in days, which is more useful to me than milliliters.) Luckily for me, I married a man who stashes ink in other countries.

And now I feel like I am coming down with a cold, so I thought it would be a perfect time to crack open the Rhodia No.
