Penmanship: to draw out letters by hand and connect them in cursive style has odd, even mysterious, effects on the development of the brain... moreĀ»

Yes -- very interesting.  I like that the article also includes the bit about how good handwriting is graded and respected - that it elevates scores while poor handwriting reduces the effectiveness of the same material.

Right now I am in the process of recovering from a severe thumb injury - which has left me writing with a pen held three fingers and my handwriting is not recognizable as my own.  It is very disconcerting -- in many ways it is almost as disorienting as seeing an unfamiliar face in a mirror.

kato,

Your second paragraph almost (or maybe actually does) reach the loftiness of poetry!


My business cards have a theatre graphic but each are handwritten with phone and e-mail, which is the European way. My wife has beautiful handwriting, and she graciously fills them out for me, as my handwriting looks...well let's just say it is legible. I tell her that hers is so perfect it looks like nun's handwriting. (She hates that, having grown up with the nuns as did I, but it is absolutely true. Except there is a more personal style to hers than a nun's traditional Palmer Method.) And she is highly intelligent.

Actually that might be a new name for a font, "Nun's."

Best,
