Back to Paper and Pencil

I've been thinking about the Internet and blogging and well just a lot of stuff lately. I just was thinking bout reading old journals and notes and letters. It seems so much more personal to be able to hold something in your hand that you or someone else wrote. I have one lonely piece of paper with a note from my mother, which she wrote to me when I got married. It kind of seems sad and yet a blessing to have a remembrance of her physical existence. I think I would like for my kids or grandkids to be able to hold a piece of me after I'm gone.
The advantage of a blog is it's typed and can be printed whenever you want or if you want. It is also more ledgible than hand writing. Then again the personal touch of handwriting that changes over time is something to think about. And that is what I am doing right now.

I don't know why I keep trying to write. It seems it's a lot like my painting , it comes in spurts. The main reason I have this blog is to see photos of my great niece and nephews. My niece Marci is a great photographer ( I am not prejudice because I worked in a camera shop for a few years and really do have some knowledge of what is great photography). So now you know why I keep a note here and there at little go lynda.
I will be on the go the first week end in May. I am meeting the youngest in FT. Wayne,In for the Vera Bradley sale! Should be fun .
