The latest chatter on Facebook is that people are finding that they're losing their ability to write in cursive because of excessive keyboard use.
It made me realize I have not received a hand-written letter for some time. In fact, the only one who writes letters to me is my 85-year old mother and her penmanship is impossible to read - but that's a whole other story.
Come to mind, the only time I write letters of any real length is during the holidays, and it begs the question: Has the attention span of our entire culture been compressed into the 140 characters in a twitter communique?
I do not know if my cursive is intact, but now I'm incredibly curious. I'm going to write a letter straight away, a long-winded letter to see if I've lost my touch. In the meantime, I'm basking in gratitude for cursive and I truly hope my great, great grandchildren won't have to Google "cursive" to know what it means.
