This is sort of an addendum to the previous post, In Search of…A Pen…, in a way. I heard recently that we type and text so much that we cursive and handwriting on paper may be going the way of the dinosaur. This does not make me happy. I know that some things become archaic in nature, but being able to handwrite seems a touch much, does it not? My argument is that we should not just abandon it because we type so much. I like seeing handwritten notes, it’s personal, it makes me think of the person. Maybe they don’t have what we normally would call the best handwriting, but the effort that they put into writing it by hand is nice. It’s a sort of human connection.
Now I am quite guilty of spending too much time in front of a computer, an unfortunate occupational hazard for techies, but I have decided to make more of an effort to spend less time in front of a computer and more time doing human and natural things. In this respect I have got to reshuffle and change a lot of my life. But this project is one worth doing, because in the long run I think I will be happy with the results. So more living less zoning out in front of monitor. Wish me luck friends. 🙂
