Morning Mediation

Tweet

I am reading Natalie Goldberg’s “Writing down the Bones,” and this morning I wrote by hand. I am again reminded by this that the act of taking pen to paper, as opposed to hand to keyboard, is special, not to be replaced, on for the other. There are at times no 208fea0c5eec247989b810beae2abb43substitutes, no replacements, or if one must be used instead of the other, allowance must Skybe made for the difference. A spinet is not a piano. They do not sound the same, nor do they feel the same under one’s fingers. One may play Mozart on either, but the sound in one’s ear is unique.

    Maybe the action makes it real or maybe it’s early training, whatever the reason I love the theory. Thank you for this wonderful thought.

    I’ve heard writing by hand really frees up your mind, but I find it really slows me down. I write almost as fast as I speak, so writing by hand is like slow acrobatics for the arm, hand, and fingers.
