Barcelona Graffiti: The Art of Handwriting

As I stumbled into this awesome graffiti in Barcelona (if my memory serves me right, that was while strolling in El Born), I got to think at how much and quickly life changed in the last few decades.

Looking at this nice graffiti, I couldn’t help thinking at how we lost the art of handwriting

However much I’m fond of technology and the immense possibilities it opened, I can’t help considering sometimes that computers led many of us to lose  the art of handwriting.

I remember when I was a kid, learning how to write and the enormous efforts to draw letters in a nice calligraphy, especially the small caps. No ballpoint pens at that time, only cartridge pens, because our teachers thought (and they were right) that fountain pens enhanced a better and nicer calligraphy.

Now, I barely hold a pen in my hand, and my handwriting is getting worse and worse,  and harder to decipher (sometimes even to myself). Curious how a nice graffiti in the streets can lead us to think at the good things of the past that we almost all forgot. I know I should handwrite more often. The truth is that I’m no more used to it.

    Not only is my handwriting going to hell, so is my spelling as I wait for the programs to fix it for me.
    Sorry I missed seeing this graffiti in Barcelona – and a very cool shot.
