inspiration...the pencil


Beautiful cedar pencils via Canoe

I recently found myself gravitating toward the use of the pencil to write and sketch. I was addicted to the black pen but the feel and texture of a pencil just feels right in the hand. Did you know that Henry David Thoreau designed and made early lead pencils? Talk about making the tools for your trade. What a neat fact.
