ink bottles

have you ever used an ink bottle?  you know the kind where you dip your pen into the bottle before you can actually write on paper?  like this one...

it's very pretty in its simplicity and nice there are no ink stains remaining in the bottom.  plus i love the coloring.  but in terms of having to use it?  not so much.  i am forever grateful that i live in the age of computers.  typing is such a luxury isn't it?  no one has to be concerned with reading my handwriting.  i don't have to worry about smudging the paper or smearing the ink.  can you imagine the anxiety over potential spillage or perhaps dragging your arm across the page?  who would want to write anything?  there would be way too much complication involved for me.

so, yay i say, for the times in which we now live.  for technology and the ease of writing.  and in the meantime, we can enjoy the bottles that the ink used to be housed in for they are a true pleasure to lay eyes on.

happy day.....
