I went back to pen and ink for my design today.  Even though I’m less experienced with this medium, I find it very satisfying.  Perhaps it is the sophistication of working with a quill pen.  While mine doesn’t have a feather (its made of plastic with interchangeable nib points), I do have to dip it in ink frequently in order for it to produce a line on the paper.  There is no erasing with permanent ink, and no room for indecision.  Maybe that is also what I like.

Here is the result:

Life begets life.

Energy creates energy.

It is by spending oneself

that one becomes rich.
