Steve Carell once said, “Sending a handwritten letter is becoming such an anomaly. It’s disappearing. My mom is the only one who still writes me letters. And there’s something visceral about opening a letter – I see her on the page. I see her in her handwriting.”
Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am joined by my mother, Frances, and my sister, Sarah, to discuss letter writing. In our last podcast discussion, we discussed the art of cursive handwriting style. There is beauty in the curving lines and connecting letters. But there is much more about cursive writing to celebrate. I like the idea that cursive writing improves our neural connections and interplay of the left and right cerebral hemispheres.
When we use cursing writing, we enhance our memory retention and improve our fine motor skills. Think of it as an exercise program for our minds. What better way to hone our cursive writing skills, than by writing letters?
So put the kettle on and add to the conversation. We would love to hear your thoughts on Tea Toast & Trivia.
I am your host Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Frances, Sarah, and me on Tea Toast & Trivia.
