Writing is older than we think…..

Did we just invent all this writing, blogging, novelling, poesy and stuff, say in the last 2,000 years? Not at all. I’ll bet Otzi the Iceman up in the Swiss Alps sat around the fire at night and heard some good stories, which had probably been floating around for quite some time. Likewise the aborigines 50,000 years ago had many tales to tell during and after the Dreamtime. Cave painting and writing are inextricably linked. Maybe that’s how we learnt to write? We made images mean something. We still do.
