  1. Classic post! My hand writing improves when I write on a more regular basis. I do miss spell check though!

  2. not as good as I would like. We learned to write in a type of Copperplate and after a few years we were forced to change styles… cursive. Consequently my writing is a hodgepodge.

    It’s a real shame that kids aren’t taught cursive in school anymore. Before computers, e-mail, ipads, etc., we wrote LETTERS!! Great photo, Ruth!

    What about people who were born since the computer age – they don’t write at all

  5. Nice post, makes people stop and think a bit. My handwriting never touches the lines and my signature never looks the same the next time I sign something…mmmmm will have to think what that says about me.

  6. Did you know that the Smithsonian has an exhibition going on right now focused on handwriting? Seriously. You can see details (and examples) of it here: http://www.aaa.si.edu/exhibitions/art-of-handwriting

  7. Partly true but not all! I write fast, move fast. A bit in a hurry just like my scribbling. But in end, one’s character is in ones heart.

  8. After reviewing the comments it made me think how much I miss receive and reading letters. No one write anymore. A lost art for sure. I am guilty because email to much easier but a letter is more personal. Great post Ruth.

  9. My penmanship has always been an embarrassment and I print everything. I would have made an exceptional doctor.
