I remember being a kid and spending hours with a calligraphy set I got as a present the one year, meticulously crafting each line, each ascender and each descender. I reckon I got pretty good at it too. I can't seem to find that book, but I did recently rediscover this lettering book that belonged my grandfather on my mother's side. I can't remember whn this was given to me and I don't own too much of either of my grandfather's stuff, so this is a keepsake for me. It feels that if I own something that was his, I have a little more than a memory of a man I wish I'd gotten to know a little better.
Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got, till it's gone - Joni Mitchell
