Today is a Good Day...

Poetry: ...to write another Paul/Lilith love sonnet. :) I started writing it last night and will work on it some more this evening.

If I'd been certain that I could write on LiveJournal from work without jeopardizing my job, I'd have gushed madly about it this morning.

Braille: The learning continues. I'm working on the first set of Grade Two letters, which is simply the letters themselves, without the use of any affixed indicator dots. The way it works is, the Braille symbol for W, just by itself, can symbolize the word 'will.' If you add a dot to it in certain positions, that changes the meaning of the letter to 'write' and also to 'work.' It's like shorthand. I don't know how blind people remember all this.

I'm continuing to practice my 'Braille with lines' system because it allows me to practice and is so much less tedious than making endless dots.

Dinner: Chicken Cordon Bleu. Yummy!

The Pope: Looks like they haven't selected a new Pope yet. Not surprising, since today was the first day of the conclave. I think it usually takes the College of Cardinals about two weeks or so.

My latest set of icons is done and is up at aerdens_icons. It's of Gibson Girls.

Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful

My colleague has this Braille alphabet card that I play with every time I'm over at his table. Never mind how they remember the alphabets (I'm sure with no eyesight, there's less information overload), I can't even tell one pattern of dots from the other!

Gette--For me, I think they became easier to distinguish by touch once I could recognize them by sight, so that now I don't have to look at them to be able to tell what they are. But yeah, before I knew the alphabet, all those little dot patterns felt alike to me.

Or maybe it was just that I never had any real interest in learning them until now; I don't know.
