Hanx Writer, the App – a virtual typewriter poem

Screen Shot 2014-11-22 at 8.06.12 AM

Seems Tom Hanks of movie fame has developed an app for the iPad that makes it look and feel and sound like you’re typing on a real typewriter. Sort of. Fun for those us now hooked on the old manual sensual typing experience. Sort of. Like. . . well, as tho we are totally compelled to remove ourselves from the actual world at each and every opportunity. But then again, so you’re up there at 37 thousand feet over Nebraska and you absolutely need to type something NOW and that sweet old manual is packed away in its original case somewhere at home too clunky for carry-on. Well, here it is. Just what you need.

and this one went out on The Postcard:

About wrensong

I am a poet who collects stones. I am a wanderer of creek beds and forests, canyons and high desert who, coming home, sometimes finds words to tell the story. I am a companion with others in the search for Deep, Wild Soul. I shape containers in time and space for others to come together to write, to tell their stories, to hold each other in the telling. I am a grandmother and the companion of a cat named Alaya. I often travel out into open country with a man who calls himself Dunewalker who has hung his hammock in my heart.
