An American Chimera

Pen and Paper

For a while now, I have been using pen and paper to record contacts, phone numbers, email addresses, and random thoughts. While smart phones are replaced by even smarter phones, my analog writing implement will never face obsolescence.

It’s a simple and low tech method that has been around since the ancient Egyptians first recorded their ideas to papyrus. I do feel a sense of pride as I put ink to paper. There is something permanent about the act that I do enjoy as I engage in a ritual of permanence in a world of the disposable.
