In the beginning...

Long, long before there were electronic devices to write and store and read words on, there were paper, pens and ink. There will hopefully be paper, pens and ink long, long into the future, too.

I love paper. There is something so tactile and so beautiful about writing on paper that I just don't get from typing. Yes, sure - I am using technology to write this. That's not the point at all. I love the advantages that technology can bring to life, but... not quite as much as I enjoy curling up with a real book made with real paper. Or sitting and writing with a fountain pen.

So, my blog will be about the joys of paper, pens and ink.

  1. I wonder if anyone will be able to read electronic 'words' in 500 years as easily as we can read Medieval manuscripts these days? I have things stored on old 'floppy discs' from only about a decade ago that are now almost completely lost to me.
