My mother kept a trove of writing and pictures that I did when I was a small child, and I now have those in my possession. The pictures are a bit the worse for wear, but I’m amazed by the creativity I had back then. And my writing was so neat too!
Sadly, my artistic talents were sidelined in my teens, and in adult life my handwriting has deteriorated dramatically. :(
I think 2021 is going to be the year when I rekindle both my handwriting and artistry. Meanwhile, I’m going to look into preserving some of my childhood stuff in digital form for posterity.
