Hey all you cool folks reading this - I hope everyone has enjoyed using their fountain pens at least a little bit extra today.
For me (and likely many of you) FPD isn't just about the pens, but the personal connections made thanks to them.
So today I spent some time talking to acquaintances about fountain pens and why I use them. Nothing egregious, just casual conversation. Sewing the seeds.
I also took the time to look back on some of the friendships, however subtle, I've built through the FP community. There are some really awesome people out here.
If you're an introvert and feel like you haven't really let yourself make any of those connections, I challenge you to do so over the course of the next year. (You have until FPD 2017!)
Start small, it's ok. I promise it's worth it.*
