You haven’t forgotten how to interpret, you’re just tired and hungry.

I could not make the captions work. He leans into the Bear and whispers “but she’s so pretty…”
I am honored to have been invited to produce a regular feature for RID Views. The first of these articles will be published in the Spring edition of Views on February 15th. These articles will be comprised of an ASL VLOG, a written companion piece and a hashtag designed to promote and identify discussion on the specific article topic across social media.
The topic for the upcoming edition of Views is “Legislation.” And the tentative hashtag is #viewsthelastword
When the article is published I will post a link on the blog. I look forward to our discussions in this new format!!

The most persuasive advocates know not to let their emotions interrupt when they speak their mind, nor say what’s on their mind when people need to hear what is in their heart.
RESIST the urge to interprexplain the sign “marry (me)” when interpreting “Deaf King Kong” into hearing.
JUST LET THAT VISUAL HAPPEN!
Remember that timing is EVERYTHING!
