There is something magical that happens when pen and paper meet. When it’s a story I am writing it is just fun to watch the characters develop and see what comes next. When it is a picture I am drawing there is the anticipation of how it will look in the end. If you haven’t used pen and paper to express something special to you in a while–I challenge you to try it. I challenge you to send a letter, write a thank you note, write a story, or draw a picture. See the magic of pen and paper. Here is the start of a drawing I began at work today of a historic house I have seen many times. The picture is nothing amazing but it was a magic way to spend 10 minutes.
