    I could NOT agree with that quote more! Our individual handwriting makes our words extra-personal, extra-creative, and extra-thoughtful. Too few of us stop long enough to take the time required for handwritten notes and cards, sadly resulting in a vicious cycle. The fewer handwritten messages we receive, the less compelled most of us feel to return the gesture. Moreover, neuroscience has shown that if we “don’t use it, we lose it”. As such, future generations are at real risk of having poor development in the areas of the brain that control the various sub-skills involved in handwriting. Thus, it is not at all an understatement to call handwriting a “dying art”…what a horribly sad reality:-(
