OMG WTF LMFAO...Seriously, we don't even use actual words in many of our common "written" communications anymore, so I don't know why this came as a surprise to me.
Although I do keep a sporadic written journal, done in pretty messy cursive, I will admit that for ease and readability, I type, text, keyboard -- whatever you want to call it -- much more often than I put actual pen to paper.
Still, I love handwriting. I appreciate words of thanks and support and notes from friends in all their forms, from email to Facebook and blog comments, but a personal note, written in perfect penmanship or a messy scribble, will always be more special to me.
And from the sounds of it, our little handwritten missives will someday be priceless ephemera, when no one knows how to hold a pen anymore.
