Home Sign

Deaf people at the bus stop at the end of the day look much more interesting and interested than our rows of dumb folk on the bus. The deaf nation has a waist-up dance for each conversation. I am spoiled with birdsong and thunder, but there is a physical consonance we miss with our hidden tongues and larynges. We say tarantula; their hands tarantella.
