Frustrated. I am frustrated that I am not able to lead a normal active life. Simple tasks have become very challenging.
I am trying not to dwell in self pity.
As I prayed that God will lead me to a hobby, Calligraphy came to mind. I was very excited but I am LEFT HANDED! Left handers and Calligraphy are like water and oil, they don’t mix! I searched the internet for books on Calligraphy for left handers but I was unsuccessful. There were materials online but they were of no use to me. I wanted a physical book.
I wanted to narrow down on the type of Calligraphy I wanted to learn. I love Copperplate Lettering and decided that that is what I will try and master.
I finally found a book by Laura Di Piazza called Copperplate Calligraphy It isn’t for left handers but is simple enough to learn.
I also found YoungHae Chung’swebsite inspiring. She too is left handed!
I am giving myself until September to learn. I am very pleased that I have been fairly diligent in practising!
