    I agree, at least with this, that computers give us a respite from erasers.
    Well done!

    The ‘undo’ button is my best friend. Over the years, it must have saved me hundreds of hours of rewriting something I accidentally erased. Deep in the recesses of my mind, I know that recreating an erased masterpiece always falls far short of the original.

      I agree – one can try to recreate an original, but it usually falls very short of the original … I use the undo button often, but occasionally “something happens” and it is lost into cyperspace … never to be seen or heard from again! :-0

    I still write a lot in pencil – and rub out – although I reckon I delete more words on my computer than I produce…
