Sharing is Caring

I know how beautiful and courageous it is to dip the pen in the inkwell early on, then to stay motivated, finding other voices to keep you inspired. Never give up. Always dare to dream... In the electronic age, all can be heard. The depth of your audience is up to you.

Science has not made me happy yet

Why does the magnificent applied science which saves work and makes life easier bring us so little happiness? The simple answer runs: because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it - Albert Einstein.
And here I am at my computer, reminded that War and Peace,  Huckleberry Finn and Moby Dick were written by hand and typewriter... There is something said for the slower method, connected perhaps most implicitly to the thought process from head to hand... Not a mad dash to fill up the page with extemporaneous and unnecessary words. Anyone use a typewriter anymore?
