Wow! I am sooo impressed with you. It is hard to imagine, that you
know so many languages...Polish, Polish Sign Language, English, and
now writing poetry in English...that is very impressive...and also
writing articles in both English and Polish for a Deaf magazine, and
working on your dissertation...
That is why it means so much to me to create the "Contributors to
SignWriting History" pages, where I can dedicate one web page to each
person, listing all their accomplishments over the years...
I am going to finish Guylhem Aznar's page first, and then start on
others, including yours, Lucy...and also others in Poland who have
contributed...we can talk more about what goes on that page later...
I got sidetracked with getting my father's music produced. My folks
are going on TV here in San Diego on July 7, and I think now they can
just perform the songs all over the place, and I will have time to go
back to SignWriting work - ha!
I hope you are having a good summer -
And I hope others will share what they are doing too...
