Cherie -
My goodness...of course you have my full permission to use any  
diagrams of SignWriting and Sutton Movement Writing...but please do  
not use diagrams from the Stokoe system or other systems...let's just  
teach the SignWriting symbols as you are doing...SignWriting is our  
system and that is free for anyone to post and use anywhere...

Obviously I give you FULL and FREE permission to post any SignWriting  
or Movement Writing symbols and diagrams related to, or included in  
Sutton Movement Writing and SignWriting...

and I never post anything on our SignWriting-related web sites that I  
do not want people to use...everything is there for people to use  
freely and without restriction...

I realize that Wikipedia has licenses and I agree that I too should  
learn about them, but don't let that make you feel that I am  
restricting anyone! Just the opposite...I feel that NO restrictions  
should apply...

You have my FULL permission to post these and place them under a FREE  
license of any kind you see fit... (see attached)...or just link to  
them at:

All the symbols are there on the web in lessons...

Grab them all from those web pages and post them with my full  

Val ;-)
