Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.

Handwriting is really a form of art. Much pride was taken in a person’s ability to have good handwriting as far back as words have been recorded. Those who wrote on the first scrolls or parchment paper took special pride in their handwriting. It was taught to those who first started going to school, as children they continued to develop and improve their handwriting until it looked like a fine work of art. They wrote letters to their friends or loved ones. The words made their own music.

I have seen the handwriting of some people over 90 years old and their hand was still steady. Their lifetime of writing beautiful penmanship continued to be part of their personality, as long as they lived. The whole world will be at a loss if handwriting is discontinued in the school systems. It will be so easy in our computer age, to drift away from handwriting. Talking into a a computer and having that machine do the writing is much to easy. If the computers all crash we will be helpless.

I am a good example of hurry up handwriting, after it cools off for half an hour. I can’t even read my own writing. Handwriting is something we should spend more time on. Time is one commodity that we don’t seem to have enough in our hurry up society. Even with all of our electronic aids for daily living. We should be proud to spend more time with handwriting. I’m afraid we will not do that.

There’s an old saying, ‘The handwriting is on the wall” that might mean our handwriting tells a lot about our character. Many people love to show off their handwriting by doing graffiti on rocks, trees, railroad cars, the sides of buildings. Even the sides of a cliff high in the mountains. People want to leave their handwriting somewhere, restroom walls is not yet a Nobel Prize category. Share your handwriting ability with the blogging world.


What Is My Worst Quality

Daily Prompt: Flawed – all about me

What is your worst quality

What is my worst quality? That will be very hard for someone like me to answer being the humble person that I am. My very worst quality has to be not being able to recognize all of my good qualities. Because I have so many good qualities there really is no room in my life for any flawed qualities to come through and interrupt a very perfect life.

Some good qualities have tried in the past to compete with the other good qualities pretending to be better qualities and that does present a problem. That causes some confusion on just how good am I? Is it a possibility that one of those good qualities might be considered a bad quality? No, No, No there is absolutely no way one could be bad, all good qualities are good qualities, as it should be. Now I feel a migraine coming on. The good qualities have become competitive because I was thinking about bad qualities. What a shock to my system, I cannot do that again. If I do, I might find out I’m not perfect in every way after all. Though I do know, that cannot be possible.

My brother-in-law is a very calm, quiet, laid-back preacher. All knowing as he is, one day suggested that I be appointed for Sainthood. And I said, “What do you mean, I realize that I’m OK but why would anyone have me  nominated to become a saint.” He said, “Well Leland, you did marry my sister and I’m sure that qualifies you to be in the running.”

Life does get to be boring when some flaws don’t come along to interrupt the daily routine, everything always comes up sunshine and flowers and always viewing the world through rose-colored glasses. Oh my, life is so good here at the top.
