The Art of the Written Words.
Seeing these old Calligraphy pens and ink sets today got me wondering about actually writing and the written words.
With everyone having Computers, Cell Phones, Tablets etc. these days, I wonder if most of the things we might normally write in hand are now typed or texted or emailed from us to another.
I cannot remember the last time I sent a written note to someone. I have sent e-mails to friends and family, and texted messages over my phone. When I want something like a recipe for instance, I will find it online and print a copy of it out. I do my banking online, I shop online. My calendar on the computer. I don't even have to sign my name much anymore it seems.
The only days I do have to pick up a pen and write something is when I am at work. If it weren't for that I think writing would be a seldom practised and seldon done activity for me.
We type a quick note and send it when its just as fast and much more personal to write a note and send it. We text messages by the dozens when we could just pick up the phone and have a chat. It seems that the practise of writing is slowly going by the wayside. And with it as well our lives become more impersonal and distant. We wonder in our hearts what we miss in our lives.
And I think that is kind of a sad thing to ponder.
