Read here for more on the
slow death of handwriting.
(And spelling very probably -
I see I have left an 's' out of dissolve!)


  1. What a beautiful way of illustrating your post. When I clicked the link it was the most odd feeling reading opening words that it would appear I had echoed months later......

  2. Lots to think about here. I now type faster than I write. But the slow death of handwriting came (for me, at any rate) with the arrival of ball point pens. At school, a fountain pen was standard, and our writing was much better than it is today. Although, when I think of it, we all wrote pretty much the same way - I could probably identify my peers from their handwriting!
