The all house audio system and the surround system for the main TV really sound shockingly great. (I had no idea how much I would enjoy streaming music throughout the house with decent sound in every room even at very low listening levels!) But there was a problem:
Gorgeous view of the Point Bonita Lighthouse where we volunteered! That speck of light at the end of the land mass is the lighthouse. The camera field of view is so limited, but this gives a small sense of the beautiful sunset.
The bubble creator assumed the stature of a mystic, silently and gently blessing the beach with his feather-lite creations: floating . glistening. spinning slowly and effortlessly in the breeze. His ambered stature atop the ledge cast a defined, thin shadow.
I ordered the Iroshizuku 24 sampler pack and a bottle of Iroshizuku Kon-peki. I have the TWSBI 580 with a fine nib and am trying both the Rhodia and the Clairefontaine papers. Things I really like about the writing experience with this pen, ink, paper combination:
