I love the idea of the new video by Tegan and Sara-it looks like someone kept writing heartfelt notes to their ex-lover, only to ruin the fresh ink with their tears. We're so used to communicating with typed words these days-emails, texts, tweets, you name it. After all, it's free, easy, cheap, and even comes with auto-correct so you don't have to embarrass yourself your horrendous spelling abilities. But there is something so much more genuine about handwritten words. You can't just change the font with a lick of the button-your shakiness and the amount of effort you put into what you write is all conveyed by the curves of your letters. I love using stationary paper and real fountain pens, it makes the process feel like a special ritual, not just something you have to do every day to get your message across as quickly as possible. Nothing can be copy-and-pasted or forwarded, and every word becomes a conscious decision that you have included because it truly means something to you, even if it gets lost in translation when taken out of your hands.
