Imagine your hands as part of your personality.
Who you are shows through in your handwriting. It’s a unique expression of your true self. So how sad is it that there aren’t that many opportunities to write anymore? I mean, with so many gadgets available these days, one doesn’t really need to pen words as such. Okay, cheques and greeting cards still require a pen, but what happens if/when those go electronic as well? Will handwriting become obsolete? Now there’s a freaky thought.
I don’t know, I was just thinking about it one day. Blank Hands. Our fingers can fly like crazy over any keyboard or on any screen, but what about our hands? Can they still paint a portrait of one if they remain one step removed? You know, bring on any communication device and they’re raring to go, but when it comes to pen and paper they’re suddenly blank? Yeah, like that.
I think it’s important to write with your hands often. Not just because one should know how to form legible letters, but also because it is a facet of one’s character. Writing anything by hand adds a personal touch, you know? Shopping lists, notes to remind yourself or someone else to do/get something, scraps of paper with your ideas on them . . . all these bear your mind’s indelible print when they’re handwritten.
Anyway, maybe I’m making a big deal out of nothing. Or not. Whatever the case, don’t let your hands go blank.
