I have typed over 220 letters… and all I can say is: “that’s a lot of paper!”
I have passed the half-way point in my letter writing to Congress. So much effort goes into division that I thought a “little effort” toward understanding and unity would was worth my time.
Dr. King used words well and to great effect. Today words are picked apart and little leeway is given to intent and words used. We understand that a word has many meanings… and how a word is said and in what context; shifts its meaning as well. It almost makes me afraid to say anything, because I will not be understood. But then I recall… to be understood you must first speak or be forever misunderstood.
Kentucky Typer had a new old stock (1984) FACIT 1740 for sale. I was looking for a typewriter to do the bulk of my letters to Congress on and the FACIT fit the bill. (The paperwork showed it was tested January 8, 1984 so I use that date).
Looking back on 2017, I look forward to 2018. Which is a good thing after all.
After typing 50 letters using my typewriters… my fingers seek out the Underwood’s. Not that other machines don’t do a great job… the touch wants what the touch want!
I was watching the movie “Our Brand is Crisis” which is about American Political consultants who go throughout the world to win elections. The only thing that means anything is to win… The movie is fiction… but so much sounds true!!
In the spirt of the day… I thank everyone for being who you all and I hope and wish bright hopes and peaceful dreams and all the joy you can obtain.
The fingers want a Underwood… makes zero sense… but its all about the touch!
Taking the time to type a letter… may get you a response you never expected.
