Writing instruments-my biggest addiction since childhood-are finally meeting their demise. This weekend, I finally got up the courage to pare down my thrice reduced pen collection by only keeping two pens and one mechanical pencil, e.g., Cross pen, Franklin Covey pen and Cross pencil. They are refillable, which means less plastic is being discarded in landfill.
I have pared down quite a lot in the past year or so, but this is a work-in-progress. My hope for the future is that I will begin to appreciate what I have and take care of it.
