Pencil Crush!

Helping my daughter with her homework has made me nostalgic for pencils.  Yes, nostalgic.  I didn’t recall the last time I had used one.  I’m always typing or tapping and when I do write something down I grab a pen from the drawer full of pens (how does that always happen?!  why do we have so many pens? – because I don’t remember ever buying any!).  But as soon as I heard the lead push across the paper I remembered how much I used to love drawing and writing with pencils.  I even had a cute little pencil case.  I was obsessed with my handwriting – didn’t like it – so I would sit down and trace over writing samples I thought looked nice .  Over and over again.  And now my love for pencils and handwriting things has returned.  Of course, I’ll never give up the pen but the pencil’s forgiveness for mistakes is hard to beat.
