I know I am late with this post. Again busy due to workload. But anyways here it is, my blog entry for Tuesday Thoughts.

The thought for today comes from George Sand. She was a noted French Novelist is famous for her so-called rustic novels.



I am using Ranga Zeal which I got from a group buy last year. The pen is inked with the only Noodler Ink I have left ” Noodler’s Antietam“.



It is fitted with #6 Schmidt Broad Nib which is ground to Stub and now it writes exactly to my liking.


Do you ground your own nibs?? Or have you ever tried to do so to suit your handwriting ??

The pen in rotation today Ranga Zeal in Matte finish Red-Yellow Ripple ebonite with Matte finish Acrylic. Using the same inked with Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-Budo.

And inspiration for today comes from one of the most iconic Architect of our times, Zaha Hadid. She was the first woman to win Pritzker Award.
