Hello, Karen!

In the past, I've left comments on your blog entries. Almost a year ago. I’ve been busy with other things going on in my life, and had to put the blog on hold. Recently, I have set up a new blog, and I’ve imported the best entries from livejournal to wordpress. I hope to continue writing book reviews, movie reviews, and my outlook on the arts.

I was tagged by my dear friend, Sharon, at Deaf Characters in Adolescent Literature, and I hope you don’t mind that I’ve decided to tag you. I really like your blog, because you talk about your passion for the deaf children. I am inspired by your work in advocacy. Go to my website. I hope to get to know you better.

Thanks!
Moxie Mocha

So how did your talk go? Are you thinking about going professional as a speaker now that you're famous?

It went really well even though I had to follow June Prusak whose ASL skills are legendary!

I've been speaking for a couple of years now through the Speaker's Bureau at Hands & Voices:
