I tell myself that I have to use pen and paper because I’m forgetting how to spell….
and it’s true
But what’s also true is.. I have it embedded in my mind that reading and writing is fundamental …
but what’s a bigger truth is….. We probably won’t need to know how, soon.
That era is fading out. Our grand-kids probably won’t know what a pencil is….
And google long ago replaced the urge of real research … so
When I tell myself I need to use pens.. pencils and paper, I feel like I’m wasting my time… seeing as we’re moving forward…
I only feel uncomfortable with the fact of not remembering how, because that’s how being programmed feels when the program has grown out of style.
You want to “hold on” to your ancestral ways….
when it wasn’t even your ancestors who taught you those ways
