I am transcribing a video and noticed that the eye-blinks in this video 
seem significant. As far as I can tell from the Archives and the 
website, we have not discussed that issue online. I am curious if any 
of you have written blinks before. For now, I am thinking of just 
writing it as closed eyes or two heads with one having closed eyes then 
one having open eyes. Sometimes, this happens during the pause between 
signs. I have noticed that in ASL, the eyeblinks can indicate almost an 
end of sentence or end of thought or transition between thoughts. I 
haven't studied this in enough detail to be sure of that conclusion 

Any thoughts or feedback on writing this?
