The Joy and Purpose of Handwriting

My mother recently sent me an article she had clipped from the newspaper.  It is by Simon Garfield and is, as he titles it, a love letter to the love letter.  It is a celebration of handwriting, of putting pen to paper and all that this delicate, intimate act of communication entails.  I wanted to blog about this topic, but it seemed odd to do so in the usual typed format, so I decided to write it by hand.  Please click on the pictures to enlarge and read.
