Earlier this week I read that January the 23rd, was National Handwriting day. It got me thinking of the joy of handwriting and how wonderful it is to receive a beautiful handwritten addressed envelope in the mail box, you don't really get the same feeling with an email in your inbox of the computer. In saying that I think email is a great way to communicate and keep in touch with our family and friends. The lost art of handwriting is one of the few things where we can express ourselves ... there is something wonderful about picking up a pen and letting your thoughts turn to words, on the paper. I remember as a child going to the museum, and attending a Victorian school day. Sitting at little wooden desks and writing down on a slate board. Handwriting was considered very important to develope a fine hand, so a lot of time went into practising copy writing. Maybe take advantage of National handwriting day and use a pen to rekindle your friendship, by writing a handwritten letter, poem or journal entry.
Many thanks for the kind visits to my little blog and a warm welcome to new followers. Hope that you are having a happy week. hugs Carolyn
