If I could, I would write you this by hand. But the world has changed greatly since I went to school and learned how to write in cursive.

I’ll write up my thoughts on a computer instead, letting my eyes glare at the white screen instead of my hands touching paper and pen. I’ll let the inner workings of the machine spell-check it all and send it by email or the worldwide web. It will be digitally transferred to the screen you’re looking at now.

Is it okay for things to be this way? Conservationists say yes, it saves trees, which I can’t argue with and will even applaud. But along the way, the particular skill of writing in cursive has been lost.



A recent conversation with a friend confirmed my suspicion that — as the keyboard is the modern, eco-friendly way to communicate — children are not being taught the cursive writing that used to establish communications Earth-wide.
