Last Minute Sign Language Photos, and a Link to My Girl Natalie

No more A-Z blogging for April 2012! Sun’s up, day is rolling and darn fast, and May is here.

I came in at the last minute with my last three letters of the alphabet and was too tired to find some sign language examples from the alphabet…so, I’m throwing ’em in here, and adding a link to a song that I’m adding to a prayer CD that I’m making for a grieving friend…

See you next year Blogging A-Z!

 

“v” for victory at last! The challenge is done.
this is a “w” in sign language – try it – it feels good to stretch those piggies.
go ahead…scrunch that inde *X*
“Y” ? Because I said so darn it!
That index in the air, and you have done the whole alphabet – good job!

Like it or Not, You are Joining me on the April A-Z Challenge

You know, at first when I started seeing contests and challenges for writers, especially blogging, I phsawed them. Over my shoulder I mumbled, “too old and famous thank you very much.”

Then, I noticed that I was in my monkey sparkle pajamas and alone in my office. Good reason to reconsider!

So – I signed up for the April A-Z Blogging 2012 Challenge because I liked the graphics of their web page. Check the page out here if you like.

I didn’t really pay attention to what I was agreeing to, and here we are: April has clearly sprung!

I mentioned on Thursday that my IRL (“in real life”) calendar has suddenly morphed, so here is how I’m looking at this experiment.

I’d like this to be more of a photo blog and I’m drawn to the idea of using the sign language alphabet. My thought, for now, is to post two photos for each letter: what each letter looks like to the speaker (the person doing the signing) and what it looks like to the listener (the person doing the listening/watching).

Back in one of my days, I was a sign language interpreter, and this will be a fun challenge to give a coffee boost to that part of my past.

Here Goes!
