    It's Fascinating to Watch

    I absolutely love to watch people sign. It's such a captivating and beautiful language. I'm learning ASL right now, it's very intimidating though! I'm afraid to sign because I don't want to accidentally sign something offensive to a d/Deaf person, or have them think I'm just a...

    A Beautiful Language

    I took interest in it when I watch a movie about sign language. I found it to be fascinating how people manage to communicate through sign, and how expressive they are. For me, it’s not only a language, it’s an art. When there is a person 'perform' sign language, I found it...

    Body Language

    I love to watch fluent "signers" use fluid motions with their fingers and hands. When they really get expressive, the arms get to flailing, shoulders shake, and even the torso gets exerted! lol. *Sighs* Too bad I only know my ABC's in Sign. Such fun!
