Happy Mother’s Day
I have come back to cursive writing after many years of using a typewriter, followed by the computer keyboard, to record my thoughts, ideas and reflections.
Fountain pens are perfect for cursive writing, which is making a comeback in the world of keyboards and digitalization. A few weeks ago, my first pen arrived, followed by a second, and a third and fourth. Why so many fountain pens you may ask?
It is a simple answer. My sister Sarah, deciding that we should have many different colours of ink, provided me with pink, purple, green, and red. I had chosen the usual midnight black, never realizing the possibilities of colour. (Thank you, Sarah!)
I have read that cursive handwriting prompts different areas of our brain, igniting the creativity that is within us.
On Mother’s Day, I am sending a letter, written in green ink, to my mother, Frances, by way of new technology, using old technology.
