Kicking it Old School

Vintage Underwood Typewriter
My mother entrusted me with the gift of an old Underwood typewriter when I was about 7 years old. I spent hours bleeding stories and poetry and all kinds of other inspired madness on that thing. I miss the work of it, the sound of the keys tapping, and the smell of a new ribbon as you loaded it in. The pen and paper may be romantic, and the computer efficient, but there is art hiding in the effort it takes to pour your soul out through one of these old beasts.
