the agony and glory of scribing

Those poor scribes with their tired eyes full of sleepless nights and their stiff shoulders and backs aching severely from sitting in the same contorted position for who knows how long. The OCD sufferer would be a perfect candidate for this position. (Sign me up). Then again, I remember how my hand used to ache after writing ten page papers by hand in middle school.

It’s almost humorous to think about all the energy scribes put in to a vocation that would soon be replaced by new technology, but isn’t that what’s happening all the time in our glorious society. On the other hand, a hand written version of the Holy Bible would be an incredible document to possess and cherish.
