Default Meesha’s first pen

Meesha is 10 years old and quite the survivor. She fought cancer for three long years of her short life and has suffered greatly from all of the destructive treatments. Despite all this she is a active, happy, beautiful, and pleasant little girl. Thankfully she is currently cancer free and has been for several years. We had an impromptu Pen turning session today and she made her first pen. She had to stand on a little stool and did quite well with the turning, sanding and finishing. She wanted to keep the protective cap on the refill to keep it safe.

Meesha - Well done!

Your first pen is wonderful. I hope you enjoy it for many years (but it's only a pen, the memories are more important), cherish the companionship of turning it, as well as the friendship that accompanied it's creation. You have had many challenges, but I hope better options are in your future.

Be well, Mark
