Missing Nehama

Dear Nehama,

I miss you.

Two weeks ago was Chemo #11, last week was Chemo #12, and even though Chemo #13 for my sister was yesterday, I just didn't have the get-up-and-go this morning to make it to minyan.  I figured I'd make it uptown to see you at noon, but when I looked at the clock again, it was 11:04, and I knew that neither seeing you nor enjoying a "Shabbos bagel" during Torah study this week was meant to be.

In case you missed it, I'm the subject of today's inaugural "Featured Reader" column on the Quo Vadis blog.

Just another stop on the way to finding a niche in the wonderful world of pens and paper!

Thanks, Quo Vadis!

Fountain Pens and the #RhodiaPaperProject: A Perfect Match

Two weeks ago, January 23, was the 278th anniversary of John Hancock's birth. In honor of his status as the first signatory -- and his bold signature -- on the Declaration of Independence, the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) designated the the date as National Handwriting Day, providing "a chance for all of us to re-explore the purity and power of handwriting."

So Much to Write, So Little Time

I have been percolating a post since Friday, January 23, but haven't yet had enough uninterrupted time to sit down and actually write it.  Hopefully in the next day or two...

In the meantime, I did have enough time to be a guest blogger, writing this post, which appears over on the blog of FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered.

Looking forward to being together with my sisters in Philadelphia in June.  Who's with me?
