  1. Digital data has a tendency to dissipate, but my blogs are printed out in book form each year, for someone to laugh at sometime, perhaps while on display in The Museum of Human Stupidity down a dingy back street on a planet far away :)

      Yes digital data is rather transient. I just wonder if my words, thoughts, pictures even if printed off in book form would be preserved in a museum.

      Actually I don’t really wonder, I know they would not be ;-) Unless someone unearthed a strange curiosity (packed away in the loft, never to see the light of day again) that captured their imagination and then who knows what would happen ;-)

    Ohhhhhhh. I LOVE manuscripts like this, Cherry. In fact, I think I painted them in a past life because they are so much a part of my pysche.

    There was a Morse episode based around this and the leaf needed to do the illustration. Always fascinating, old manuscripts.

    I always admire those books. I would not mind doing that as a job again.
    I learned how to be a calligrapher years ago. I love it.

      Been a calligrapher must be a very rewarding job. My Great Grandfather is listed as being such in the records we find of him, but he died when my Grandmother was young so we can’t find out much about him!
