A Pencil Obsession


Some people rely on the good old #2 that we all had to use (and still use today) on standardized tests in school. Personally, I prefer a mechanical one with 0.7mm lead, but it’s still a pencil! Not a pen or a marker, or a keyboard.

I stumbled upon a neat little story about a new shop located in the Lower East Side of New York City called C. W. Pencil Enterprise, that specializes in nothing but pencils. It brought back many childhood memories of writing, drawing and sharpening my #2s. Everyone is so attached to their cell phones these days, it is nice to pick up a pencil and write a note to someone—or yourself—instead of typing it into the “Notes” app on your phone or sending a text message. A pencil really is a useful, handy object, so if you are in the area, be sure to check out the C. W. Pencil Enterprise pencil shop.
