Precious tools

We all have tools that we love: paint brushes, hammers, drills, words, computers, needles, thread, cameras...

This is my most precious tool.  My father gave it to me when I was about 15 years old. Everytime I use it, I think of him and imagine him watching me from the "Great Somewhere" of memory, and nodding his head. Perhaps he had hoped it would lead me to an engineering career, like his. But 50 years later, it draws mysterious aquatic creatures on lovely paper.

What is your favorite tool?
