Hello Machado, Charles, Shane and everyone!

Yes...exactly. Machado is is harder and harder for  
people to travel today, with so many restrictions, and that is why it  
is so great to have a SW Symposium in different countries, for the  
people who live in that country...

We have already held a successful SW Symposium in Europe last summer,  
thanks to Shane, Kathleen, Sara, Ingvild  and so many others, and  
another one this Autumn possibly in London...

...and now Charles, I hope you can direct the organizing committee to  
hold one in the United States..the first one for United States people!

I am afraid to say the word Americans, for fear we will comfuse  
others living on the American continents, so we are United-Statians!  
or or ASL writers ;-))

And I hope someday you can have a Symposium in Brazil and Latin  
America someday too, Machado...that would be great too...

Regarding helping us, Machado, I am really touched by your ongoing  
generosity...THANK YOU for your beautiful SVG symbols...they are  
lovely...may I write to you privately about some details regarding  
the symbols? If you wish to help us further I know exactly what we  
could use...if you could help us place some of our new symbols in  
your SVG style, so we have the full IMWA in your SVG  
calligraphy...that would be an enormous gift which will be used for  
generations to come, in several computer programs...quite soon let's Skype or talk by phone in a few days?

Val ;-)
