Dearest Winfried and co-learners,

A reflective time warp between when this message came to me and my reply
that I just now am getting to:

Eurythmy!!!! I had forgotten all about it! So thank you for reminding me.
in fact, at the conference I attended on that spurred my original
communication, the person i most connected with is a gentleman who "signs"
for the deaf. Eurythmy seems like it is based on a similar idea as
signing. I shall have to do a comparison between these. definitely very
useful for my research Winfried. many many thanks to you and a cyber-hug
as well!
