I made friends with my big Sharpie Fine Point marker; I need contrast to discern my writing. I label file folders in block lettering. I scribble the date on things I open from the fridge, or tag leftovers in plastic bags. Reading an expiration date or small point font requires some magnifier hunting and gathering. Pass.
I use a felt tip pen to write notes and letters. Again, I look for contrast against white paper. Felt tip pens don’t bleed through paper like Sharpies do, either.
I missed writing on paper when I gained low vision. Eventually, I realized thicker pens skirt the limitation. I love sending things the old-fashioned way: in the mail. I stalk neat stamps for future cards, too. I’m a nerd like that. Don’t judge. Have you seen the bonsai tree stamps? Love those.
