“Welcome To Hay House” – how a very big dream came true

“Welcome to Hay House. ” Those were the words I heard last week. Welcome. To. Hay. House. Even now, I have to say them very slowly to myself, as if saying them quickly makes them less true.

Hold up, I’m getting ahead of myself… Let me go back to the beginning. When I was little, I was book-obsessed. Does anyone remember those book catalogues they’d hand out at primary school?

My Five Best Pencils for EveryDay Writing

2015 was the year of the pencil for many, and I was no exception.  Due in part to the efforts of pencil-pushers like the folks at C. W. Pencil Enterprises and Pencils. com, high-quality woodcase pencils are more available than ever (though they may be more expensive than when we were kids).  Without further ado, here are my top five pencils that I enjoy for everyday writing: Palomino Blackwing 602.  Palomino’s resurrection of the classic Eberhard Faber pencil looks great and has what I consider to be the perfect balance of point retention and darkness.

Letter P Activities
