I am reading Natalie Goldberg’s “Writing down the Bones,” and this morning I wrote by hand. I am again reminded by this that the act of taking pen to paper, as opposed to hand to keyboard, is special, not to be replaced, on for the other. There are at times no substitutes, no replacements, or if one must be used instead of the other, allowance must Skybe made for the difference. A spinet is not a piano. They do not sound the same, nor do they feel the same under one’s fingers. One may play Mozart on either, but the sound in one’s ear is unique.
