Thank you David — so many prompts to journal seem to concentrate only on making us more productive, but I think journalling can be much deeper and more enriching without becoming too navel-gazing. Completely agree about the pen — it’s simple, but something to do with the elegance and the reminder of a slower pace make it very pleasing to write with a good pen.
