Absolutely beautiful article.  Excites me about my work in Brazil and who knows, in Maryland soon.

Hello Tim!

This is a great article...thanks for the link, Tim...and Judy and 
James Shepard Kegl are both on the SignWriting List, as you know...

Not only is SignWriting mentioned in the article, but Yuri is 
standing in front of a blackboard that has SignWriting symbols on 
it...see the first photos at the top of the article...so SignWriting 
is there, thanks to Judy and James and Yuri!

The story Babar, which they mention in the photo captions, is one of 
the many stories written in SignWriting at the school...
