Fountain Pen Wisdom

Fountain Pen Wisdom
This is a new feature on my blog.  Look for it about once a week.  I chose the title because it conjures up a slower time when it took time to write a note or compose a letter; each word carefully selected and meticulously written. 

Look for the silver lining even when the world 
hands you rust and corrosion. 

Hold out your hand and wait expectantly 
for the gift of another’s touch.

Live with light.  It will guide your way 
and inspire others who are cloaked in darkness.

  1. I really like this feature. It's good to be reminded to reach for the very best word. . . slowly. A "fountain pen" thought will hopefully help me take a deeper breath in that moment of enjoyable reading. xoxoxoxo

  2. Taking a deep breath and enjoying things slowly - wonderful things to strive for. Thanks for your comment.

  3. "Hold out your hand and wait expectantly
    for the gift of another’s touch."
    Just when some circumstances make me feel like closing myself off, here is this magical advice. True wisdom.

  4. Michelle, reaching out can feel risky at times, but usually we are rewarded with kindness. Thanks for your kind words.
