Here's what caught my attention on the news this evening: A story about how calligraphy is a dying art in China because the youngsters find it easier to write in Chinese by using a computer.
The calligraphy story makes me think about a segment I heard this morning on CBC's Fresh Air regarding the lost art of cursive writing in North America. Check out the Sunday, October 16th interview with Rhonda McEwen: http://www.cbc.ca/freshair/
