Key stroke, or pencil stroke
Digital stroke, or analog stroke
Precise stroke, or flowing stroke

To be precise or to flow, that is the question.
Whether ‘tis nobler for the mind to suffer
The tension of keying for the sake of efficient linearity
Or to take pencil to paper and let it wander endlessly
among a sea of possibilities?...

Thought provoking adaptation of that timeless Shakespeare quotation. Excellent Ronald!

There is something quite fun and liberating about a wandering pencil. Thank you.
