a feeling of pensive sadness, typically with no obvious cause.
I’m a dyed-in-the-wool introvert. I’ve often described myself as the person at a neighborhood dinner party that prefers to spend the evening with the family dog. But I’m also an entrepreneur. I enjoy building businesses from the ground up. I love the pace, the excitement and the decision making required to make a start-up successful.

I have been a computer geek most of my adult life. There are few things in my professional life that a computer couldn’t make better, easier and faster. However, during the holidays late last year, my wife and I stumbled upon a small ink and paper shop in Asheville, NC. On a lark, we each decided to purchase an entry level fountain pen. I immediately fell in love with the concept of writing with this pen. After decades of typing everything, the nostalgia of writing things down with a fountain pen, of taking time to compose my thoughts, became almost an obsession for me. I began handwriting meeting notes again, then I started journaling. All because of this darned, inexpensive fountain pen!
