Sorry about the unexpected hiatus. I’ve been gone a month. The old adage time flies when you’re having fun rings true in my case. I’ve been off on an extended vacation enjoying the fruits of my labour. Soon I’ll have to wake up and get back to reality and go back to work. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. Designing pens and manufacturing them gives me great joy. There’s no greater feeling for me than taking some raw materials and sculpting them into something not only beautiful but precise and incredibly functional. It’s an amazing feeling I wish I could share it with all of you. I wish I could bottle it and sell it. It’s pure happiness. I hope you get to experience it in your day to day activities. A wise friend of mine told me the secret of life is “finding the joy in the small things in life”, and I believe her. I can remember when my children were babies and everything was a first for them. I saw joy on their little faces every single day when they were discovering something new. One day I went to the dollar store and bought a container of bubbles with the little plastic wand. Well, you wouldn’t believe how those little faces lit up when they saw the bubbles come flying out of the seemingly magic wand and then I couldn’t believe the tears of genuine sorrow after they caught a bubble on their hands and tried to touch it and it popped. I quickly made more bubbles and the pain of them breaking and going away was quickly forgotten. It’s the simple things that make life great. I’ll never forget that experience. I’m sure my children have. But maybe not!
