SignWriting List
January 17, 2007

I am ill in bed with a fever, everyone. And I cannot work...I am so  
sorry ....I am going to a group of doctors today, and I do not plan  
to work for at least a week...

In that message I was trying to explain that I couldn't continue at  
the work pace I had set for myself...Kim seemed to understand  
it...but I guess I didn't explain myself well for others. Nor did I  
understand that I was really that ill...So there have been a lot of  
misunderstandings as to what I was trying to tell you...I do not have  
the next lesson even developed...I had hoped to develop it while I  
was giving the students feedback....then I became ill and things got  
overwhelming for as soon as the fever goes down and I can  
work again I will try to work on that...No promises as to when.

I am glad no one paid me to teach this course, or I would have to  
return your money...and just the administration of that would have  
been overwhelming too!

I will write to Juliette privately about schools using  
SignWriting...I hope someone else will write Juliette too?  
july.tigre at

After that, I am turning off my computer...Have a wonderful week  

And I hope you continue to write to each other here on the  
List...thanks to Stefan, you will have a PDF document with photos and  
contact please use the SignWriting List as an  
excellent forum to write handwriting to each other! The List is here  
for you to use with or without me...

And best of luck with teaching SignWriting, Cherie, to your  
students...I look forward to hearing more about that later!

Val ;-)
