Hello Machado and Everyone -
You know, everyday I wake up and think..."How lucky we are to have  
the internet!"

It is hard to imagine how isolated we all would be without it.

It means so much to have a free and open working collaboration like  

So I will thank the universe instead, that we all have met each other!

I look forward to working with you, Machado, on the SVG.

I will keep you informed of my schedule, as soon as I can organize it  
myself - ha!

I just received a message from the Ethiopians, who have been waiting  
for their handshapes to be added to the IMWA, so I do have a lot of  
work before me, but I will take a look at it and also at your current  
SVG, to give you a summary of what will need to be done when the time  

Val ;-)
