There is something calming and vintage about a plain yellow pencil.  Just the fact that this style of pencil has been used for decades comforts me.

I do not use pencils very often and I am fortunate to have a few vintage mechanical pencils.  Most of the modern pencils I use are also mechanical.  However, I sharpened a brand new yellow pencil and stuck one of those foam grippers on it yesterday and I am really enjoying its sentimentality.

Sometimes life is most joyous in simple things.
