I finally found peace in writing letters again. And I'm using a thin brush and ink for writing now. I was never happy with my handwriting and often felt tense when writing, but with a brush it feels much better and more natural to me. Strange that I've never thought of writing this way in my past, it seemed nonpractical to me, but it is actually the softest way and easier to take up ink than with a calligraphy pen, at least for me.
It's going slowly, my tomato plants are still extremely tiny for the time of the year and I can not show much outside the greenhouse except for strawberries and onions, because the weather is still too unsteady that plants refuse to sprout yet, but meanwhile I am picking lots of wild herbs and weeds like chickweed to prepare fresh juices and I'm sure as soon as weather gets better, it will all go very quickly!
