@Zivio well said.  Just a reminder, you will go broad later and come full circle.   Life is like that, I see bell bottoms jeans making a comeback.

Gau!  Estupendo!

Little space with big solutions.  I once saw this somewhere on the internet.  So I built one for my daughter's studio.
I think you will find a solution if you like to.  I also once saw a coffee table pops up to become a dinning table.

When you can build a cabin, this is a no brainer.

Does everyone have a dining table?  I forgot which pen master (Madaraz) recommended practicing on a dining table as it provide ample space

Wow congrats!  What a great endeavor

How does different language differ with script selection?
And how do you propose to maintain each personís interest high?

In English, I felt instant gratification with italics, boring compared to fancy scripts like Spencerian. Italic is slow but I found italic in cursive form is quickly written.

But my brain always drawn to Spencer for speed but it took so much more effort (especially with drills) to achieve.

I have two pens in my pocket, one for BP and one 1.8mm chisel.  Whichever I pick up is the one I make my notes with.  I am in solely to improve handwriting, everyday handwriting

Some days when I rush through my notes, I see I still regress to my former self. And kept reminding myself Ö someone will eventually read my scribble and scrawny scribbles. Might as well take a deep breath and write slowly

In the end, I speed up over time and looks legible but nothing like a calligrapher

I am happy.

I use a rolling ruler sometimes

Beautiful lettering.  I love the uncial, italic, and Roman(ce) play

Those are really rich inks.  I don't even know the meanings of these words.  I think following this thread will improve my vocabularies

@AnasaziWrites Wow!  Seeing the stone clearly now, wow!  My apology for being ignorant of stone types.  I had to Google it :D
Thank you for sharing with us this beautiful gem and its significances.  I truly enjoyed it.

@AnasaziWrites Wow! I don't know the meaning of it until I looked at the jade carvings.
How small is your x height?

@Erica McPhee Your flourish is always a pleasure to follow.  Very well balanced.

@Erica McPhee Oh Phyton's skin went to the market for cash.  Phyton became soup for the fiesta, all neighboring farm family came.  Along with all it's content.  After devouring four adult chickens, two ducks, it rolled into a ball around the center pole holding the pen up.  Farmers were poor, and anything this size were shared, proteins for the children.  It was a blessing for us.

@AnasaziWrites whatever that we snared or grown we ate. Tropical and midway up the mountain, all natural.

Not much farm experience except learning about crop rotation, eating field rats, a python that devoured several ducks and chicken in our chicken pen, and fresh caught fish by the creek.

@Zivio Here Here ... uhmmm  Hear Hear

Every now and then, a newbie comes along with the enthusiasms that we are familiar with, as once we ourselves were.
As we sought to improve ourselves, hitching a ride with a junior is a thrill by itself.  So it must be said, thanks Zivio for bringing yourself.

@Erica McPhee 
et al

Thanks everyone for your magnanimous display & sharing of your artistry, inspirations and kind words.  But wait... there's one more day!
