Did you know that the pen possesses greater strength than a keyboard? I know you're probably wondering, "How can that be when everything within the digital age processes faster than ever before?" You see, when you hold a pen in your hand and begin to write, it becomes realistic...breathing life into our thoughts on paper. Writing by hand, is more efficient in processing information and overall learning. Writing brings out our own individual personalities.
Based on a vocabulary change, it's also used for early detection of Alzheimer's, Cognitive Impairment, and Dementia. However, this blog is a creative and collaborative expression of how pen and paper was once used consistently with greatest value.
"The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought, this in turn makes us think more deeply about life, which helps us regain our equilibrium." ~Norbet Platt
"Paper Invitations, Yearbooks, Thank You Notes & More"
On Easter 2017, my Mother In Law brought her old yearbook, paper invitations, and several written excerpts from years past. It was a great joy to visually see and touch paper that has stood the test of time! Not to mention, witnessing such remarkable usage of penmanship and documentation of invaluable memories. My husband and I became passionate within wanting the same for our memories. We began to think about being our own structure to these ineffable thoughts.
"Paper Filled Memories"
There is nothing more appreciated by your family than the gift of documented stories and memories. When you put a pen to paper, invest in paper invitations, and make time to do what was once prominent prior to digital age...it's quite extraordinary what invaluable sources can come from that. Take time for paper filled memories.
"You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke." ~Arthur Polotnik
