Hello Shane and Everyone!
How wonderful. SignWriting is spreading. And I hope there will still be
a SignWriting meeting after the Maastricht Conference as well...I asked
Stefan if he could teach a mini-workshop on SignWriting, working on
SignSpellings, and he said "Of course!"...and maybe Ingvild could also
share with everyone?...share with the group the Norwegian Sign Language
projects using SignWriting?...Just a thought. I guess an agenda needs
to be established, and a place to hold the meeting...

So I have a question...How far away is Maastricht from Brussells? Can
someone post a map to the SignWriting List, circling both cities? I
cannot visualize the distances...

Maybe you can also attend both, Shane? The SignWriting meeting in
Maastricht is free...and then you all could make a pilgrimage to
Brussels together - ha!

Wish I could join you...I used to live in Europe, and I miss it a
lot...I have not been in Europe since 1990...  Val ;-)
