On her Twitter Feed, musician Suzanne Vega shared a note sent to her by Prince, in praise of her hit song, “Luka”:

It’s a graceful note of appreciation from one artist to another, but what is so striking is the beautiful cursive script used by Minnesota’s favorite son.

Cursive writing is no longer taught in public schools and more than one study suggests that this is a mistake, as cursive writing helps with hand/eye coordination and enhances brain function in important ways. Cursive handwriting that goes bad can also be a helpful symptom-check. One writer has admitted that she became aware of neurological problems through the deterioration of her penmanship.

Cursive writing is important, and we are surprised and happy to discover that Penmanship workbooks are still available in the world, and worth having. Why not work on improving your hand, while Netflix-binging?
