What's up at Ravens March.

Vintage pens-Handmade books-Silly statements


Posted by Dirck on 20 August, 2010

Well, I had known that things were bad in Moscow this summer, with the unspeakable heat and smoke, but as is always the case with this sort of thing, I didn’t believe it in a real way without a taste.  Today it is not unspeakably hot, and the fires responsible for the current air quality are about 1500km west of here, but is it indeed rather unpleasant.  My synmpathy for the Russians is magnified.

…and that’s about all I’ve got time for today.

Today’s pen, easily found in poor light:  Sheaffer Cadet
Today’s ink, without anything clever to say:  Skrip blue-black

    It’s distressing to me; BC is my home province and some of the most beautiful areas in it – many associated with wonderful memories – are aflame. Even knowing that fire is a natural part of the forest/grassland ecology, it just seems that much worse this time, and waking up to the prairies shrouded in the remains of that beautiful landscape – well, it just makes me sad.

    I’m astonished the smoke has made it all the way to Saskatchewan.

    • Imagine how astonished we were. Usually if it’s this thick around here, the source is a mere 500-600km away in the northern part of the province. I cringe to think what it was like nearer the mountains.
