Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2021-278: First World Problems (FWP): Before the Ink Is Dry

I enjoy writing with a fountain pen.  Don’t ask me to explain it.

I have a problem.  You might have no sympathy.  I am experiencing FWP with my fountain pens:  The ink seems to disappear over night.  I did not have this problem in the past.  I am wondering if it has something to do with the ink, which used to be made in Germany, is now made in China.  I don’t need to listen to other people’s conspiracy theories.  I can come up with my own.

I will live with this difficulty.  Bear with me as I try to figure it out.

  1. Assuming the ink is an aqueous fluid, I doubt that evaporation overnight is the issue. I suspect internal hemorrhaging, although I can't imagine where the ink would be leaking to.

    1. Certainly not into the pen or onto the desk. Maybe it is a secret ink tax that the Democrats have passed in one of their bills.

      Grace and peace

    2. I guess any corporate levy would be an inc. tax.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
