deaf world



.

. It was pure humanity, both the caretakers and the cared for. It touched a place of holiness in me.

Caroline that's a lovely story and the illustration just adds so much more. My husband's cousin is involved in drama for the deaf and I am always amazed at how quickly they can communicate with their graceful hands and lively faces. It's wonderful, isn't it?

Thanks for a great story - you have convinced me to try to learn to sign.

I have been thinking about you!
Thanks for your help; you have great instinct. I will show you my revisions soon. I have many family obligations (fun ones) this weekend. Hope yours is fun too!

Oooooohhhhhh...you're a linguist! I majored in English and almost did a Master's in linguistics.

Sign language is beautiful. I love their facial expressions and when they laugh. It's gorgeous in motion.

Lovely! Reminds me of a "shadowed" theatre production I attended once. Most in the audience were deaf, and the pre-show chatter was completely silent! Hands moving and waving everywhere... One thing I noticed is, with sign, it's much easier to communicate across an entire room!

I love the deaf community, I studied ASL in college full time for one year. All my teachers were deaf, and we learned the language by being totally immersed in it. I think it is one of the most beautiful languages in the world.

So cool you got to be apart of it, and learn some signs and stuff.
