    Hello Stefan and Everyone!
    

    It is February 22 in Germany now....Here in California it is still 
    February 21st ;-)
    

    Thank you, Stefan, for always remembering my birthday. You have taught 
    me how important birthdays are...they give us pause, don't they? To think 
    about what we have done in our years here on this earth, and think about 
    what we wish for the future...
    

    I will be 60 years old in 16 hours (smile)... a new decade for 
    me...
    

    and I am planning to live another 60 years, so I am only half way 
    through and certainly not done!! ha!
    

    And everyone - look at the wonderful card that Stefan wrote - it is 
    written in ASL in SignWriting on the right, but on the left, Stefan has 
    written the movements of the lips speaking English words...called 
    Woehrmann's SpeechWriting, which is Stefan's unique invention, writing the 
    sounds of the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) with lip, mouth and 
    breath symbols that are originally based on SignWriting symbols, but Stefan 
    has expanded the amount of symbols further, to be able to capture the 
    refined movements of speech...and Stefan has developed a standardized way to 
    write the movements of speech around the world -
    

    Recently, Fernando Capovilla from Brazil has been working with Stefan 
    behind the scenes, and Stefan developed a way to write spoken Portuguese 
    with the feedback of Fernando's team in Brazil - it is just so amazing to 
    watch all these brilliant people work together -
    

    So thank you, Stefan, for writing my birthday wishes, and my name, in 
    Mundbildschrift (SpeechWriting)... I will treasure the card always ;-)
    

    Val ;-)
