Today’s snapshot if of my Pilot Kakuno and Iroshizuku Chiku-rin ink. I am really enjoying this combination!

For 2021 (and for the previous month) I’ve been writing and doodling in my Traveler’s Notebook. It’s a fun experience, and very different for digital note-taking and drawing for me. I think digital has many advantages over analog, but writing by hand is kind of… heartwarming? Good for the soul? A connection to reality? I can’t explain so well, but I think it adds something positive to my daily life and rounds out my well-being.

One thought on “Writing by Hand

  1. You bring back memories of the time when I started carrying a ink pen and a bottle of ink. I was very young then and, although I do not have good handwriting, I thought that the ink pen would help me practice my handwriting. It didn’t happen since my progression toward higher education prompted me to use a ballpoint pen more for convenience.
