The Heart of Cursive
I received two hand-written notes in the ‘snail’ mail this week. I was overwhelmed by emotion. It has been a long time since I received an analog letter. The felt hand of cursive flowing from each note also flowed through my mind like a cooling breeze on a hot summer day. It reminded me of how we humans can express such beautiful presence through the heart and hand.
Allowing the mind to experience an expressive outlet other than typing and texting provides a link to our visceral emotional being. It taps into awareness on a different level. Although I know my perspective is somewhat filtered by my age, they do still make fountain pens. Imagine a pen you do not have to throw away! Maybe we should consider not throwing away the art of writing.
