Hello Matjaz!
This is very impressive. I understand, from a previous message you  
wrote to me, that you are born into a Deaf family? So perhaps  
Slovenian Sign Language is your first native language? Well someday  
Slovenian Sign Language will be a written least it can  
start right now, and you may be one of the very first to try to write  
your language, which is a real pioneering position to be in! Kind of  
exciting though too...

Want to learn to write your first sign in SignWriting? What is the  
sign for Slovenia in Slovenian Sign Language? Do you have a small  
video clip or a web site you can point us to, so we can see the sign?  
Then we can write it together here on the List...

Val ;-)
