#a343 :: Chinese ink pot

January 23, 2009

012309This tin of oil-based printing ink has not changed since I bought it (counting on his fingers) nearly 15 years ago on my honeymoon in Beijing.

Intended to be art supplies for some project that hasn’t yet materialized, there website it’s been sitting at the bottom of a drawer, rx nurse waiting to be used.

The stuff takes forever to dry out. I’m tempted to cover it and leave it untouched for another 15 years, as a sort of ongoing talisman against adversity.
