A journal of simple pleasures, travel, food and minutiae.
I love bringing back pencils from the places I have visited. (These days, however, it is really hard to find one in a gift shop; it seems that plastic pens have replaced these beauties.) At first I started buying pencils as souvenirs for my teenage daughter, but now they are my prized possessions. They actually do double duty: adorn my desk and serve as wonderful reminders of beautiful places. My favorite pencil is from New York City. Like the city, it too is eye-catching!
