    I have no resolutions, regarding pens or life in general, but I do have some plans. Plans, like resolutions, may or may not come to fruition.

    There are a couple of pen repair projects that I've been putting off. One may just get sent away, but the other is something I want to try myself.

    I have no intention of buying any additional pens, inks, or papers, and it's probable that if I resolved not to do so, I would keep the resolution. Not from will power, but because the urge seems to be gone. I was buying a lot of wooden and mechanical pencils last year, but now I have what I want.

    Still trying to learn to draw, with questionable success, but it interests me. Among other things, I want to do more drawing in ink this year, instead of just pencil and charcoal.

    As usual, I will buy lots of pens this year and maybe even keep a few. I'll probably buy a few vintage mechanical pencils for myself. No more ink or paper, though. I already have a lifetime's worth!

    I've already talked with Brad on how I would like it to look....a PL style with white gold furniture and a flexible tricolor nib.

    Okay, so I have resolved not to buy a pen, especially not this one, though it's insanely gorgeous. https://www.pensachi.com/collections...eid=f88cc7a786

    P.S. For those who are interested, I was in Dromgoole's today and he had a Parker Duofold on sale for $299.00. I don't know for how long. He has a story that goes along with it. This is a $700.00 pen. If you are in the market for one, you should call him. But probably not if you have resolved not to buy any more pens.
