  •  Thanks for reading. (11+ / 0-)

    I used to hate repeating myself, but now I see it's necessary to reach a wider audience and even to enhance my own perspective.
    My own three children had no apparent learning difficulties, except for one who found holding a pen or pencil for cursive writing a physical torture.  The computer key-pad has proved to be his salvation.  I'm sure many other people discovered even the typewriter keyboard to be liberating.  On the other hand, some people with very large fingers or arthritic stiffness are finding the touch pad or screen to be liberating. Manual dexterity is not something that can be acquired.

    It ought not to be "the right tool for the job."  It ought to be "the right tool for the person."  It took me a long time to discover that I could save myself a lot of muscle pain by just using a lighter hammer. :)

      that got swallowed up in the ether.  Shorter reply:  Your repetition helps things to sink in.  Also, when you use a term in different contexts, it rounds out the concept for me.  Thank you!   BTW, love the hammer thing.  Been there, done that.  :-)
