What a great typewriter! Tom is a saint when it comes to bringing his work back to life. It looks like you are coming to love the Olympia brand as much as I.

I just got everything from Levenger yesterday. I got a Letter size book in the matching color. Got a great deal on everything. I also ordered a oil lamp to write beside on my desk. I can just imagine the inspiration that writing in the light of a flame will bring.

Great photos. (I especially love the typewriter pics.) As to the comment by James about writing by oil lamps: There was a time, many years ago, when I wrote poems by candlelight. There was something about it that brought out images and phrases that wouldn't have come out under other lighting conditions. I recently came across those poems and was surprised by their depth. I hope your oil lamp brings you similar results. ~Lisa~

Wonderful to be able to read and see your amazing posts. I did not know you had a "splendid" type writer - how slendid in deed.

cannot wait to see the library anew. Saw it from the outside, it is a beautiful sight to see.

splendor - love that word- it certainly holds a lot of meaning, to me, it's the words & emotions that comes after the event, it's everything - nature, people, everything
