A friend of mine, watching my self portrait with typewriter on my wordpress frontpage – he asked, if I have an input door / mouth in my PC tower for all those paper outputs coming from my old fashioned typewriter. Yes, he comes near to the problem: to convert 40 years of paper writing into the digital orbit of the world wide web.
actually I’m trying to combine my writings with photographies.
modern times need photos as memory-landmarks for thoughts.
who remembers words without any photo-bridge?
google maybe …
old fashioned tools for printing and publishing
starting a kind of basic iconography for writers …
I read daily the inspiring blog of Elizabeth Obih-Frank

Scan, convert to pdf. I for one can compose better with a notebook and a pencil, not to hard, not to soft, but with the aroma of the cider essence: i love the smell of freshly sharpened pencil, mangling with that of coffee…Handwriting has its privileges.
Thanks for the reverie.
What a great looking typewriter. 🙂
It is astounding how far we have come. I did like the old fashioned typewriters. BUT … no spell check .~~~~ : – )
