The other day as I was scrambling around rummaging through purses, backpacks and baskets looking for the simplest of objects – a pen. I thought to myself, I don’t think I even own a pen. How do I not own a pen? In this age of iPhones, I keep all my lists in it – grocery, errands, work-outs – even journals. Who can keep up with a pen and much less paper these days?
With all of this social media and iPhone overload, it’s refreshing to step back and use something that is meant for just taking notes – not for getting directions, counting your calories, checking your email, checking the weather, listening to music or oh yeah, calling people. I’m talking about chalkboards – before the iPhone, before the text, before the dry-erase and even before the Post-it!
