Joe Cocker 1944-2014
I’m writing a short
letter: so beautiful; you
made me feel alright.
I haven’t been happy with the ink pen I found packed away from 35 years ago. While looking online for alternatives, I saw some feather pens. Some of them had metal nibs attached, but a few were actually quill pens. Interesting idea. I ordered two from Charles at Onlyrealquills on Etsy. They are beautiful to look at. The drawings above are done with the writing pen; I haven’t tried the calligraphy one yet. Charles sent me some tips for their use, but of course doing is always the best teacher. For first attempts, I’m pretty happy. They require a delicate touch, which I like, and I like how differing amounts of ink (depending on how deep you dip the quill) can result in a denser and blacker effect or can be quite light and delicate.
And Joe Cocker: Rest in Peace, the music will live on.
