Shorthand has really served me well. I used it in two different long-term jobs. Other than that, I copied books of shorthand to help me quit smoking. I used it for notetaking in college. NOW I am enjoying just reading all the shorthand I can find to help me while away the time while I have a broken right wrist (I'm right-handed). So you see, shorthand has been and still is a great friend to me. Hope everyone else enjoys it as much as I have in my 79 years.
