About a week or two ago the three pens above appeared in one of my dreams. Why? Well I don't really know. They say that you know you have truly mastered a foreign language when you begin dreaming in that language. Perhaps I'm so totaly immersed in the world of pens that they have now become a part of my subconscious. The pen on the top left is a Kristal fountain pen in red made by the KRONE company. The white pen in the middle is a MICHEL PERCHIN Imperial fountain pen in white guilloche and 22 karat gold. On the bottom left is an OMAS Mezzo fountain pen in Mandarin. The OMAS is triangular in shape and the one in my dream was burgundy not orange. I like all three of these pens but why they should show up in my dream is a mystery to me.

In my dreams these pens were being given to me by a friend, not so much as a gift but more as a token of appreciation for a task that I performed. I can't remember who the person was in the dream that gave me the pens, but I do remember that it was a woman.
