UPDATE and My New FAVORITE Video

So... you know how I'm playing Helen Keller in my school's upcoming production of the Miracle Worker? Well, it's been going great so far. I've been having a lot of fun with Mariah especially, who plays Annie Sullivan. There's a lot of handspelling in the show, so we'll be sitting on stage during practice, spelling things into each other's hands, joking and laughing. I also checked out a book on ASL from the library and I'm learning some signs! It's so exciting!

Anyway, it just so happens that one of the blogs I've just started following put up this awesome video with a cute guy doing ASL along with this song. :)



I emailed the link to my director so she could forward it to the rest of the cast. Awesome, right? Hope everyone's doing good! :D

Cool! did you know that SL has as many "accents" as any spoken language? I'm sure you did. I find that so interesting!

PS: regarding your comment- I most definitely smiled!

OH! and Thanks! :)

That is so cool that you're learning ASL! How exciting! And I love that video, I sent it to a friend of mine who is taking ASL classes.

Good luck with your play! Sounds like a blast :)

I LOVE it! I'm fascinated by ASL, since it has it's own grammar structure and cadence. I love the significance of the fingers used, the chest, the face...so cool.
