Pens to Die For…

“She was surprised by the intense desire to touch. The allure lay in it’s long sleek shiny shape. It was irresistible. She wasn’t disappointed when she picked it up. It was sheer quality, a perfect weight, it gave her hand strength and commanded attention. They would be together a long time, close, companionable. It allows her to express her innermost thoughts, not for the world to see, just her. It records her travels and adventures, she would never give it up. She would prefer to die first.”

Journal, Diary, Ideas book…

“I was first introduced to the notebook whilst on holidays. We left the shores of Australia and set off cruising from Seattle to Alaska.  How was I going to remember our adventures, photos yes that’s good but I wanted our thoughts and feelings from the moment and this was when the notebook appeared. It became our daily ritual each night to write about our adventures and now some 3 years later we take turns in reading to each other and remembering our beautiful holiday.”

 Have you got a hankie?

“The air was thick with meaning, eyes ablaze across the wooden bar separating the men, as they slowly stood face-to-face, toe-to-toe. Suddenly between them a movement, a flutter, a breath. They both looked up to see a beautiful white handkerchief with finely embroidered corner moving like a butterfly above their heads. It landed gracefully on the table as both men turned to look at Alice, her beauty held them entranced as she uttered the words that would bind them in brotherhood forever “Whose shout?”

 “As she walked down the dusty train corridor the filtered evening light struggled to find its way through the high set windows, the atmosphere was heavy and oppressive. She found it difficult to distinguish the brass numbers above the carriage doors but was reluctant to fumble in her bag for her reading glasses…”
