~Sign Language (American) ~
ASL is thought to have originated in the American School for the Deaf (ASD), founded in Hartford, Connecticut in 1817. ... Laurent Clerc, the first teacher at ASD, taught using French Sign Language(LSF), which itself had developed in the Parisian school for the deaf established in 1755.
Follow your Arrow. An arrow knows where it will land the moment it is let loose. Once the archer releases, there is no second chance. At birth we all begin a journey with our inner arrow guiding the way, so follow your arrow, feel the wind in your hair & enjoy the ride!
Lapis Lazuli is one of the most sought after stones in use since man's history began. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods, and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth.
~ Hand ~
The Human hand is absolutely jam-packed with nerves giving it the ability to feel the slightest of sensations. If a person is blind the hands can serve as a substitute for creating a mental map of the shape and constitution of an object through touch. Often the first point of contact between new lovers, friends & even strangers during a first meetings handshake. When hands embrace or fingers interlock, there is an (almost) uniquely human bond made that resonates throughout our entire being. Hold someone's hand & you can change there day around, give comfort in a time of need or simply remind them they are not alone. Think of all that can be accomplished with our opposable thumbs and fragile fingers. Our entire world is built using our hands making them a symbol of creation, humanity, ingenuity & resilience.
