God Bless The Child

smithcoronaelectricto quote an old song: mama may have, papa may have, but god bless the child that’s got his own… typewriter! i threw that last bit in there because i obtained one a few nights ago (thanks elizabeth!) the smith corona was described as “a good version of a Chevy” in the movie california typewriter. 30 years ago i mostly used a typewriter for school, work, and purposes that were not creative. after watching this movie, i thought i’d try one out again to see if the experience could turn itself into the muse. i do like hearing the “bap bap bap” of the keys, the “ding” when the margin is getting close, and the groan of the carriage return. thankfully there’s still enough ink in the ribbon to hit the ground running.
