A couple of years ago, I blogged about my trusty old fountain pen that I purchased when I first attended university in the late 80’s. (https://pakos.me/2013/06/15/i-bought-a-pen-24-years-ago/). It has followed me around over the years through various careers, kids, and umpteen moves.
In the age of the internet, with many people discussing and worrying about the death of handwriting; it was ironic that my pen would be reborn and live again! Ya, that is probably the first time I have mentioned being reborn on this site… 😉
My blog post above must have attracted the interest of someone in the Netherlands (thank you Google…), and one day I received a message from Rachel, saying she also had an old Elysee fountain pen! She wasn’t using the nib anymore, and offered to send it to me for the cost of shipping!!
I received it a couple of months ago, and wanted to say a big Thank You to Rachel for breathing new life into my old friend. 🙂
