Purple Hibiscus: A Novel | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
post image

Jaja‘s defiance seemed to me now like Aunty Ifeoma‘s experimental purple hibiscus: rare, fragrant with the undertones of freedom, a different kind of freedom from the one the crowds waving green leaves chanted at Government Square after the coup. A freedom to be, to do.

Advent is a time to focus our expectation and anticipation on the adult Christ. We do the Gospel no favor when we make Jesus, the Eternal Christ, into a perpetual baby, a baby able to ask little or no adult response from us. God wants adult religion and a mature, free response from us.

LiterRohde @Chello Caran d‘Ache 849 Fluorescent Orange Fountain Pen with a Medium steel nib. It also comes in rollerball and ballpoint and mechanical pencil. And there are a dizzying number of color options. (edited) 2mo
Chelleo @LiterRohde Thanks…I have no business even thinking about a new pen but this is so tempting!! 2mo

LiterRohde @Chelleo I am the absolutely the wrong person to be around if you are trying to avoid buying new pens. I just bought 4 new fountain pens (my preferred pen type) during the recent Black Friday deals. 🤣 So. If you ask me if you should buy an 849 - yes, yes you should buy it. The ballpoints can be had for $20 depending on the color (some are $30-$40) and the fountain pens are around $50. Did I mention you should get one? 🤣 2mo
Chelleo @LiterRohde Nooooo!!! 🙉 I‘m too impressionable for this! I have 2 unopened pens because I know I won‘t be able to use them before the ink dries out (I‘m fairly new to fountain pens but had a subscription for about a year). I currently have about six that are in regular rotation. 2mo
LiterRohde @Chelleo We should definitely be friends! 😈 The links in my most recent posts since my return to Litsy link to my Instagram (I‘m LiterRohde there as well) if you want to see how far I‘ve fallen down the fountain pen rabbit hole in the past two years. The links have more pretty photos of the inks I use in the pens. I know Litsy is a literature based social platform, but if you want to talk pens, ink, and paper, or have questions - I‘m your guy! 2mo
Chelleo I‘m following you on IG now…your pen game is stellar!! 2mo

LiterRohde @Chelleo No! Please stay! But yes, I have decided that in returning to Litsy I would still use my fountain pens to post the book quotes and reviews I do. It‘s weird to say, but writing my thoughts with fountain pens has helped to keep me sane over these past few years. 2mo

Chelleo @LiterRohde I don‘t think so… 2mo
LiterRohde @Chelleo I was wondering only because I‘ve only seen Rock Your Handwriting on IG, but I guess seeing handwriting here might lead you to want to do the challenge there. Or is it on Litsy as well? Anyway, I hope you have fun with it! 2mo
