Yes, I've been wanting to learn it for a long time. I had a card wth braille letters on it that some organization was passing out, and I tried to get used to the feel, but I wasn't patient enough. Sign language is someting else I wanted to learn, as did my daughter. I bought several books but again wasn't patient or persistent enough. She started taking it as a language in college, but they didn't have a regular class--she had to go to the computer and learn it from that and then take a test with a teacher. I'm afraid she dropped the class. Two more reasons that I should have thought of being a teacher of the disabled--maybe I would have had to learn braille and sign language. The time may yet come, and if it does I hope I do have the patience. If I do become blind with age, all of you will be an inspiration to me to be cheerful and to realize that I can do what I do now. I wouldn't be able to do the library work, but, following Louise's example, I would still be able to work in the bookstore and, of course, following your examples I would be able to continue volunteering for bookshare.
