Back to fountain pens, back to happiness?

I’m not sure whether it’s being in a great new job, or a new house, or that I happened to be watching the episode of Frasier where Niles has to give up a pen owned by Noel Coward, but I was suddenly struck by the urge to start using my fountain pens again.

Now, for a long time my choice of writing instrument and paper was cyclical and changed quite rapidly – part of the reason I started this blog years ago – but then I settled on the Fisher AG7 Space pen and Moleskine notebooks. They seemed like the perfect combination, and I’d kind of lost the yearning for fancier implements. It was also a time when my prior job started to get, well, stale.

I can’t say for certain that they are connected, but is happiness related?

Anyway, it was 11 o’clock, and I’m yanking pens out of their storage rack and cleaning them. After a few moments I realized I was going to use only a few, and ended up filling only the Lamy 2000 and Lamy Safari.
