Cursive with your coffee

A sad fact of modern education in Canada
is that children are no longer being
taught cursive handwriting.  I argue this
one back and forth with some of my
elementary grade teacher friends, but
cursive matters -- because sooner or later
we have to write notes,  sign our names,
write in a journal, and without cursive
handwriting we're reduced to printing.
So I bought myself and Steven some
cursive lettered mugs.  Steven brought
me my wake up coffee this morning in
this one.  The lettering is more lovely
than I've captured here.  I do need
two coffees to be fully awake.

Have a relishing-handwriting-and-coffee day.
