Seems to me things always happen in groups, maybe pairs, often in threes, but things just keep coming up. It isn't surprising then at this time of year, when people are asking me about gift options for the artists in their lives, that the care and feeding of pencils (graphite or colored) comes up.

People ask about type, brand, the relative qualities, and of course they ask about price. Price is something we all need to be aware of. But people usually don't ask me about CARE. I have to bring that up.
