Back No. 2 School

I always enjoy school supplies and haven't had to purchase them in years until this fall.  My son starts kindergarten in less than a week.  His list included dozens of No. 2 pencils sharpened.  I spent the last half hour whittling away exposing the pencil leads.  I love the remains collected in my new vintage ashtray.  Sometimes I have a hard time producing work during times of transition.  I envision a solid schedule taking shape once school is in full swing.  Until then, I do a fair amount of fretting, twiddling my thumbs, and ultimately sharpening pencils. 


  1. What does that ash tray collect when it's not collecting pencil shavings?
