two really good things

Sometimes I forget the last time I used a pencil. I mean, I take notes during meetings at work, but rarely is it anything more than a quick scribble. I use my laptop and iphone for everything these days, even journaling. While I was in LA, Anne reminded me to slow down and take time for things. I’ve taken that to mean writing in a proper, paper journal. I love the idea of writing with a pencil, too. There’s something lovely about wearing down the lead to a nubbin and having to sharpen again. Plus, I always seem to need an eraser.
