Downtime


In this day of i-that and e-this, it seems that our sense of touch is ruled by button-pushing and screen-swiping. What of tactile delights and art? I am all for pen and paper. No keystroke has compared to the glide of a well-balanced pen across fine paper. Journals take on the shape of your hands. The feel of wood, paper and leather: warm and soft, with a natural physical beauty. The crinkle of pages whilst leafing through one's thoughts makes for good company.
