Dictation playing in my earphones + 80s & 90s hip-hop and R&B playing in the background, thanks to the park DJ= A great afternoon! [SIDEBAR: Yes, I can get every word, watch a basketball tournament, nod my head to the classics simultaneously.]

Steno In The Park: The Wonder Park (Atlantic City)

My absolute favorite park to practice in has been The Wonder Park, located in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The park is beautifully scenic. The ambience is peaceful and inspiring. Large sized inspirational words like: possible, glorious, remember, wonder, believe, passion, desire, imagine, almost, continue, becoming, another, and changing (to name a few) are scattered all around the park. One of the cool features of the park is that the words light up at night. Love it!

I Love Steno: The Tour- The Gallery Of Shorthand

Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting The Gallery of Shorthand. The gallery is located at the Federal Courthouse in Central Islip, Long Island (New York) (Eastern District).

The gallery exhibit is a comprehensive timeline of recorded words. It is organized in epochs, starting with the first epoch that depicts the ancient scribes of Egypt.
Epoch 1
The timeline ends with Epoch X, modern day CART and closed-captioning.

There is a very cool display of the various steno machines that have been invented throughout time. Amongst the machines are steno notes (on paper), and a variety of stenography educational tools (past and present).

The Gallery of Shorthand also displays speed contest medals.

There is also a section of the gallery dedicated to “Legends of Shorthand.”

I loved perusing all of the exhibits at The Gallery of Shorthand! I look forward to visiting the gallery again. Kudos to the gallery’s owner and director, Dominick M. Tursi.
