    Today’s Thursday Things is so relaxing, the soft shadows, shades, all perfectly arranged and illuminated; wonderful photos. My gray Karas Kustoms Fountain K would fit in here perfectly!

    When I’m writing (not forced writing: “You will submit an essay of 1500 words on the implications of tree bark to the average urbanite by Monday morning”), the silky glide of a fountain pen over smooth paper coupled with the formation of letter and words puts me into a mental state that is very relaxing. Time seems to slow down, the concentration on the creativity is soothing. Plus, the love of a fine pen, well performing ink, and it is like being is a kind of happy place. Like a peaceful day dream.

    I’m surprised the Olivesilver Lamy Aion is not included, or the champagne Pilot Decimo. But the pens here fit the theme very well, and I love this. Thanks for a great Thursday Things. I’d say this belongs in the 2019 Goulet Calendar (it does) but I know not every TT can be in the calendar.

      I love that, Tom. you had the media team cracking up with the “implications of tree bark to the average urbanite” prompt. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Always great to hear your positive praise.

        Thanks Lydia, somehow the creative writing just took off. Right now I’m anxiously awaiting today’s Q&A with both Brians!!

    I relax with my pen (a Lamy Safari in Petrol) simply by letting the words flow. The feeling of its smooth feedback in my fingertips is extremely relaxing along with the soft whispers of the nib on paper early in the silent morning. When I am alone with my pen, paper and a hot cup of coffee, my creativity really takes control and it’s like a form of meditation for me.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Very poetic. I love it. So glad your pens are so relaxing for you.

        Thank you, Lydia. I never thought that a pen could foster creativity as much as it does.

    I appreciate this warm, calming Thursday things! That Lamy LX Palladium is a beautiful pearl color and looks amazing in this photo. I just bought my daughter the Pilot Metro Bronze Lizard for Christmas; it’s her first fountain pen and she loves it.

    I enjoy using my fountain pens to journal in the evening. (Although if I’m trying a new ink, I sometimes find myself focusing more on the ink than my thoughts. 😉 I also write a couple things for which I’m grateful each day – it can be something simple like a pretty sunset or an enjoyable family meal. It’s gotten me into the habit of focusing on the positive. In the mornings I use my pens to bullet journal and plan my day. Writing to-do lists is more fun with fountain pens! And being more organized means feeling more peaceful for me, too.

    I love this beautiful Thursday Things. Very peaceful, very calming. The Lamy LX Palladium is gorgeous. A great selection of nice, inexpensive pens. Pens don’t have to be expensive to be attractive, as you’ve proven here!!!

    This is like being in my mom’s house back in the 70s.

    I haven’t decided yet if that’s a memory I want to revisit.

    Where do I get the owl though? 😉

    Ooh, an ink testing book. How have I not seen that before? Like it!
