Hello Kim!
Welcome back from Gallaudet University. I hope you enjoyed your  
experience on campus...and I understand you and Charles did  
meet? ....and you discussed SignSpellings over Kentucky Fried Chicken  
and beer, with a group of students from Gallaudet? ha! What a great  
way to spread interest in writing ASL...;-)

Your calligraphy sounds intriguing...can you scan some for us and  
show us on the List?

There are some wonderful handwritten SignWriting styles that I have  
seen over the years...that would be fun to gather that together and  
create an article about handwriting styles...

Val ;-)
