A while ago I was given a few things of my grandmother’s. Some of those included ink, and several feather quills she had made. I’ve been inspired to get back into calligraphy lately, in no small part due to Little Coffee Fox who is always sharing her amazing writing skills with brush pens.

From way back I’ve loved traditional Irish music groups such as The High Kings, The Irish Rovers etc. and when I first saw Socks and the Frying Pan at the Dayton Celtic Festival 3 years ago I instantly became a fan.
