When I was poking around on the internet looking at information on National Arts and Humanities Month, I came across some pretty cool links that, well, link letter writing and the humanities. I'm sure there are plenty more out there, but these are the ones I came across:
My Brilliant Pen Pal by the DePaul Humanities Center - this program allows people to mail questions to scientists, writers, etc. I don't know if the program is still in place since the last "brilliant pen pals" listed were for Spring. Still, it is a cool idea.
Mia: sorting postbox photos, oh what fun, and so many boxes

Mia: still haven't finished cataloguing

sunshine2170: Mia would love to see your collection of postboxes, I think they are fascinating. We have a lot of gorgeous and different ones on the island

Mia: I've shared a small selection to instagram... but that's only the tip of the iceberg

Mia: I'll see what I can do....

radellaf: Wanna like the X159 but it makes me keep my fingertips a bit far from the nib tip. Teal body is very nice tho, worth having one for $6 of AE.

stompie: Ah, I prefer a distance between my fingers and the nib tip as it allows me a lighter touch/stroke.

radellaf: Hand geometry thing, probably. I haven't had the problem with any other pen, shy of a M1000, so if it's something you prefer then wow is the X159 a good deal!

stompie: Interesting. Isn't the M1000 that one they compare the X159 to?

allanorn: stompie Either the MB 146 or 149; I can't remember which

although: Back from our UK / Ireland adventures! Found a rather nice Parker 61 in used bookstore in Lyme Regis. Sent some positive waves Mia's way as we rolled through Holyhead to catch a ferry

iamtdogg: stompieallanorn - Montblanc 146 dupe would be a Majohn P136 or a Wing Sung 629! Montblanc 149 dupe is the Jinhao 159/x159

radellaf: Alas, no dupe with a raven, or snake, on the nib. // Proboards quit blacklisting my VPN IP, yay.

alcyone: I like the X159 a lot. I have their sailor clone too, I think it's supposed to be like a progear or something, and it's really pleasant.

stompie: Yay, home from holiday!
