Neglected Tools

Neglected tools on my desk

One down side of my love for tools and toys is that I can’t use them all at once. In fact, some don’t get used for weeks or months at a time and that’s a shame.

My paper notebooks and fine pens have languished while I’ve been amusing myself with Roam.

My favorite typewriter hasn’t annoyed my family with it’s slapping sounds for months.

Olympia SM3 is sad

Some wonderful film cameras just sit on a shelf.


I suppose this is normal, but I often feel guilt around having things and not using them. Or not using them enough, I guess.

A positive side effect of noticing this neglect is that now I’m determined to use all of these things…today!
