There’s a simplicity in a wooden pencil and a clean sheet of paper; all the complexities of the world start there. As a piece of mind, it’s reassuring to know all the red and green lights, all the apps, all the computers, systems, smart phones and Internets of things, all the complications of life begin and end, as they always have, the very moment that pencil lead touches the paper. And so it goes, full circle, right back from the sheet of paper, through that cedar pencil, into the hand and up to the mind of the person where it all began, the mind of the person where the next idea is born.

"In my young day" (as my father used to say) the brand of ink that everybody used was "Stephens".
