The art of the scrawl

5:48 PM

I think one of the reasons that I have never fully embraced the digital diarisation of my life is I still like to hand write on occasion. It's a dying art ... or is it a skill? Depending on the day the quality of my cursive can range from romantic to seizure.


Marking paper with a signature is another decreasing practice - which is a shame because there is something quietly satisfying about scrawling your name analogue style, making your own unique mark ... (that said, years ago while a good way through an all day winery tour, upon signing my name to a vino purchase realised I had signed my maiden name ... and it looked no different to my married name signature).
