It's been a long time here at pipes and pens but i want to try a little something different than what I've been doing. I will still be centered on writing and my thoughts and works. However, piping is going to take a front seat in this blog. I am still at a unit that is out to sea waaay to much to be truly consistent but i will start trying to get things out through my wife while I'm at sea. Tonight i'm chilling out watching Elf, smoking my wessex, and drinking some mulled wine.
There are few things that are more relaxing. As much as I love the smoking time the old salt (my meerschaum) allows me the wife doesn't dig it so much. I had a rediscovering of my love for pipe smoking while out at sea with a new buddy, Clint. After that I came home to a shipment of a Randy Wiley pot style pipe and a ton of tobacco. I will be doing what I can after I get underway to bring writings and pipe smoking from out at sea.
