“Waiting at the airport on my suitcase,
a girl traveling from Spain
became my sudden friend,
though I did not learn her name.

And when the subway dimmed
a stranger lit my way.

This is the brotherhood of man.”

~ The Innocence Mission, Brotherhood of Man

I love typewriters as well, though I never had any use of it when we had one, it reminds of the past and typewriters does have certain charm to them

it's a shame how technology advances so much that the joy of composing words in the raw is lost, having it printed out from a computer is just not the same

Hey Abraham - that was such a fun day, but I still hate having my picture taken.

Thank you for sending over your blog of your trip to Boston and the shop. Emma and I loved it!

I'm so glad that you're enjoying your Olympia SM9. I'm sure it will serve you well for many years.
Come by whenever you can and I'll take care of the Olivetti repair for you.

See you soon,
