The Escape of Babel Tower: A Version of Sign Language Legend

 

ImageThis was written by late Carl Schroeder through an e-mail to me last year on Easter 2013:

Today is the happiest day for 2 billion Christian people around the world.

I think otherwise. I think that sign language was given to the mutes (some had their tongue cut off, no?) by an archangel for the purpose of helping them to escape the confusion of Babel Tower…in The Bible.

Another version of the sign language legend that I learned when I was little holds that gestures were used by Moses who was raised and trained as the Egyptian prince (and priest) and who was translated and interpreted by his brother Aaron to petition the pharaoh to let his people leave and end the bondage. Sign (or gestural) language is valid; it works. It is a living system, an ever-changing one, ancient yet ever new.

Today I’m celebrating ASL!

Have a happy Sunday!


Our Girls First Easter Egg Hunt

Longtime readers may recall that I took our first golden retriever, Rusty, to an Easter egg hunt for canines. If you haven't read that story, you can read all about the Soggy Doggy Easter Egg Hunt. Yes, it rained on our dear old Rusty, but today the girls, Blondie and Melody, had the prettiest day yet this spring, all sunshine and warm temps.

Today's the day we're going to an Easter egg hunt!

Don't worry, we didn't leave Blondie at home.
