My interest in and use of fountain pens rises and falls I’m not certain, but I think the seasons have something to do with it.
Regardless, long about Christmas time my journal shows I dumped my awesome Pelikan M200 with home-ground italic nib to pick up the venerable Fisher AG7 space pen. Both pens are reliable writers with good memories, but I think this time around the stress of the holidays made me crave the simple bombproofness of the Fisher.
But lately I keep finding myself at work wishing I’d brought my Pelikan. I would suggest maybe that spring was in the air but for the 14 inches of snow that are due to fall today.
Regardless, it’s a good sign.
