Bullet pen

In Bosnia, I think it was in Sarajevo, there were peace-keeping forces there. There were still landmines in the fields and other places and there was quite a sad and depressed atmosphere over the country still because of the war. So, this pen made of bullet cases and the larger cartridge case that it slots into was a real symbol of that time, and I just like how the bullets have been turned into something more useful, something creative, something that’s good, and I like the nice feminine designs on the cartridge case. It’s definitely a good symbol of hope at that time. I keep it on my desk in the hope that maybe it’ll inspire some good writing at some time, but mostly I keep it to remind me of that period and my travels in Bosnia.
