the perfect accessory for the job

I purchased this exquisite mechanical drawing pencil in 2000 from a charming stationery boutique in Paris. It is one of my favorite accessories -- I love the heavy feel of it in my hands and the silky-smooth flow of the lead when it travels across the paper.

Today I am using it to jot down all the ideas for paintings that I have swirling in my head. Now only if this treasured tool could buy me more time in the day to paint.
