Years ago, I won a Pelikan P205 with a broad nib in a giveaway, but never really used it. Kirk Speer of Pen Realm gave it a Broad Architect custom grind today, and I love it! 🖋 It was so fun meeting Kirk and witnessing his skill in action.

@PetraOleum Saluton, kiujn robotojn vi programis? mi interesiĝis pri tio.

Let me try to demonstrate how a funny error can be poetic. This is a picture shot in a Chinese restaurant of a table vinegar with a hand-written label on its lid. It was supposed to be 醋 (cù, pronounced as tsu with a falling tone, meaning vinegar), however, it was mis-written as 酷 (kù, the character for the loan word “cool”). The two characters share the same left part thingy we call “radical” and they rhyme. You know how people just need to add a bit of 醋 to their food? What about some 酷(ness)?

Went to my dance class last Friday. Instructor was a new one. As she approached me to check attendance, she asked "what's your name" in Mandarin, 叫什么名字. I was surprised for 1 sec then realised it was my Tee with Chinese characters on it that "gave me away". It's really magical, cuz 叫什么名字 isn't something we hear often - It's too formal. But it's a sentence I teach my students on their 1st Mandarin lessons. And there I was, in my first dance class with her, she asked me 叫什么名字 in our mother tongue.

The other day I saw a poll asking “what made you stay at mastodon”. Choices were like “my friends are here”, “dunno, I just stayed”, or some specific good aspects of this place. That was rather ironic as my reason which is also most Chinese users’ reason, is not listed. To this English speaking world, it’s beyond imagination for many that people tooting in Mandarin would most likely call themselves “cyber refugee”. Because we had nowhere to go. Because everywhere was censored and we had to flee.

IDK if this is a common problem or not, but I have so many things that #Inspire me and that I want to make #Art about that I literally forget most of it half the time. In these first two pages, I made a list of themes, subject matter, and decorative elements that are common in my work, or that I WANT to explore but just haven't gotten to it yet.
