Our wacky southpaw

For some unknown reason Alyssa turned out to be a left-hander, which is something that's never heard of from both sides of our family. We want to be as helpful as we can in supporting her to develop her own way of fitting into this right-handiness dominated world, but we simply know too little about how left-handers see the world.

So I was very excited when I found an article that describes several different writing styles used by left-handers. I printed out this to show Alyssa how left-handers turn paper slightly toward one way or another to make writing easier for them. After we went through all the different styles, Alyssa simply turned her paper up-side-down and started writing from right to left with flipped alphabets. Ann and I were both too stunned to say anything.
