Re: lefty's

Thanks Eva. Sometimes...I wonder if I was one of those monks or scribes
in a past life! LOL. From an early age I was totally jazzed about
penmanship and calligraphy. I would sit and practice my writing for
HOURS...and design different ways to write. Those fairytale books with
the huge, illuminated "O" on "once upon a time..."....I used to study
and copy the fancy letters. Must have gotten that from my grandfather
(Jesse) who was also an artist of some sort. The art of lettering (and
it is an art...even though most people don't think of it as that...but
hey, early cave dwellers drew on the wall to communicate...no alphabet
then) so next time you start to write...think about the beauty of the
written word. It's kind of cool.

calligraphy, Spencerian and copperplate by an 80 year old master who
used to design the diplomas that hang on the walls (he did them by hand
and had them reproduced). When I do envelopes and such, I just doodle
and use crappy old calligraphy pens...but I have some artwork and
calligraphy (illumination with 14K gold on it) that I did when I worked
with him...and one of the pieces now hangs in Morocco...in the palace.
Kind of cool, huh? LOL (just some trivial info for ya'll)
