Favourite Pens

Stephen at Redtag has a post on his favorite writing instruments:


"…a pen chooses you as much as you choose it:

For a pen is a friend, an extension of your personality, and it is your confidant, your secretary (as in secrets), the keeper of your thoughts, your intelligence, and your ideas, in a way that a pencil, a keyboard or a PDA can never be.

Your pen holds in its silent, gentle barrel the words that you will write, and it holds them secretly and carefully until the time comes for you to choose them and loose them onto the page. It writes your name (even on a credit card chit) with love and care, in the way you wish to appear to the world. It makes the notes you want to make; sometimes the notes you wish you could make. It does what you wish your hand to do. It makes you feel as you wish to feel…."


[Thanks John!]
