The New Pen
A new pen has potential energy.
I like to think of myself as a casual writer/artist, and there is nothing more exciting to me than picking up a new writing utensil. I spend considerable time at Reul's art supply trying out new things before purchasing.
I look at smoothness, ink flow, line diameter, color, width, and weight.
I imagine all of the things it will create in its life; letters, numbers, doodles, scribbles, notes, lists, and inkblots on my hands.
I pull off the cap and it begins.
