Awhile back I wrote about my trusty ol’ typewriter (a gift from my friend, Ruth) and afterwards I printed off that post (and your comments) and mailed them to her.
A week later I received her handwritten reply.
“I never would have expected so much nostalgia — especially on typewriters. So glad you enjoy my Olympia. Just one correction — I went to college in the 40’s. Got out of Graduate School in 1947 — 66 years ago. You weren’t even a gleam in your Mother’s eye yet!”
(Thought you might get a kick out of that.)
Ruth and I have been writing back and forth for decades and I’ve come to expect her shoot-from-the-hip, laced-with-humor, honest observations. There’s no editing in our friendship — or correspondence.
Another “state your business” writer I admire is cyber-friend and fellow-Oklahoma-blogger, Elizabeth-Michelle. “Must read” features on her blog are Sunday Morning Coffee, Wordless Wednesdays (photography), and her highly entertaining random “lists.”
Good writing is worth passing along, handwritten or otherwise.
In the meantime, I’m still typing away.
And loving it.
Enjoying thoughts in every format,
