We have become so heavily reliant on email, text and typed messages to communicate to our friends, family and co-workers. We’ve become incessantly dependent on technology to communicate. In a rare instance when I do receive a handwritten note from someone, I notice it, I read it and I remember it. Isn’t that the purpose of most communications? Text messages are also written quickly particularly if the texter is doing something else so the content may contain typos and be otherwise ambiguous.

Handwriting is becoming a lost art. Philip Hensher author of the book ‘The Missing Ink’ wrote “To continue to diminish the place of the handwritten in our lives, is to diminish, in a small but real way, our humanity.”

Cheezburger.com has an article posted on their blog site titled, “Keeping the Art of Handwritten Communication Alive.” The children’s notes gave me mixed emotions. One dad did leave a note addressed on Hello Kitty stationary. For informational purposes though, the site demonstrates with a string of photographs just how important this issue of handwriting, actually is. The intent is to be jestful but with sentiments expressed from children to adults in letters like, ” I’m sad your living,” when a relative was moving and a letter from daughter to mother which read, ” Dear Mom, Thank you soooo much for being my mom if I had a different mom I’d punch her in the face and go find you,” leaves little wonder why many adults are having so much trouble addressing and articulating their emotions and also why there are inherent problems in any type of electronic messaging, and texting places a premium on brevity and lack of explanation.
