Cursive is the langauge of love. 

We all enjoy love letters. There's just something about those lines. Especially when you read them, again and again, tracing those aberrant curves with your mind. They take you on an adventure. Whether the letters were written from your sister in the south of France or your lover just down the street, there's something palpable about the way they make you feel. The handwritten notes. The care. The craftsmanship. The speed that cursive demands. It's not easy to pour your heart out onto the page. Gestures say everything. Perhaps the very best example of such a deluge of exchanges comes from Elizabeth Barrett and her future husband, Robert Browning. This is but a glimpse. If you have the time, you should read them all. They'll warm your heart and fire up your cursive quill.
