I have been thinking about how to not only start this post, but how to convey just what it and the content behind it truly mean to me and my family. The words that most often come to my mind are 'unending gratitude, life changing and new beginnings'.

It is these that represent everything in and around my life. Everyone knows about my mental state. The unfortunate, previously unmediated and the amazing medicated present. My lung issues are continuing to improve, I still have emphysema but not as bad as the toxic mold made it out to be.

This may sound cliche, but I understand now whats behind the light and look of new life you often find in the eyes of a survivor. I never really did before.

I've reconnected and bonded with my oldest son Alex after being separated for more than 18 years. I wake up every morning with gratitude and joy knowing I get to share and experience the day with my family and friends. There are so many positive personal changes going on that I cant talk about, but know that the good juju is seriously free flowing around these parts.

Someone who's advice I trust once said to me, A new life usually comes with a new job. I listened, thought about it, sought advice, enlisted help, followed what I knew to be the right path for me and made it happen. So my friends it is with some of the greatest pride I have known, I present to you The Savage Pen Company and offer these words as a guide to where this company was born and where it is going.

~~

The Savage Pen company:

Our beginnings as human beings go back to two great achievements, the creation of the first tools-- axes and simple blades made of stone, obsidian and flint--and the first art--handprints and paintings on cave walls, animals carved from bone, and marks and symbols that would later become writing. We call these times beyond history "savage" or "primitive," but when we hold a beautifully carved stone tool we know we are touching elegance and our deepest roots.

Now Savage Pens re connects us to the roots of writing, art and the beginning of man. Lovingly made with the same materials our earliest pen crafting ancestors used. Created at the highest standards of the pen-maker's art using the best of modern technology, With each of these unique hand-made pens we hope to join you to the past and future of humanity.

~~

I offer my deepest Thank You to all of you who have assisted great or small in getting this life changing project started.

Dennis Lively
Savage Pens


More to come soon

Dennis,

Besides the commercial success that this new project is hopefully going to have, it is already a personal success for you, and that is the most important thing.

I wasn't aware neither of your emphysema nor your eldest son. I can't say much about the second thing, but I have worked for a oxygen therapy company (yes, the one that hires oxygen concentrator machines, oxygen metering devices, and oxygen tubes with people with lung troubles). I know that mostly everyone that sees you in person thinks you are both lazy and dumb (people with low oxygen level usually sleep a lot, don't have much activity, and forget things, as our brains require a lot of oxygen to work properly), which is totally unfair (and unkind, of course).

I wish you the very best with this, ... and look forward to see some pics in the near future!!

Martin

Ok a sneak peek at a couple of pages from my notebook to tide you over. Mind you these are crude doodles so keep that in mind when viewing. Also, some of these are slated for full production, others were just an idea that passed through I wanted to get down.

Just be careful of the epoxy you're using. Depending on what color it dries/ cures to could be a problem.

We've thought of that. The beauty of the basic design is that all 'seams/joints' are covered/hidden.
