I’m afraid I can’t find the original creator of this, (maybe Cambridge University?!), but it’s pretty cool, right? I sometimes think that it’s amazing that we can read; putting 26 letters and all sorts of punctuation together like puzzle pieces, while at the same time making meaning out of them, does not sound easy to me. For some of us, it isn’t, and I totally get that. Any thoughts?
