The writing debate stirs my synapse again.
There is a folk tale from Britain (what bit I can't remember) which is
about counting sheep. The tale is 'Yan, Tan, Tethra" that being 1,2,3 in
the sheep counting numbers. If the sheep are not counted correctly the
various bogles will take those missed. The point being that at one time
in the RW counting was considered magical. This suggests to me that both
numeracy & literacy should be intensly magical skills in G. Far more
than RQ demonstrated (HW remains a closed book thus far).
