Dear Booksharian citizens: My apologies about posting without the OT in the subject title on Touching Beauty. I was in awe of what this artitst has accomplished and he had his dream come true a Touching Museum where blind people can learn about scuplture and art touching it. He works with only three fingers of his left hand with an special tool made for him. He's an sculptor. A promising painter, he wasn't blind but when he went to Vietnam war a shot and a grenade explosion left him badly wounded and enventually blind. He was invited to touch Michelangelo Bounarroti statue David at Italy and he discovered something in the statue that most of us wouldn't have known: David's eyes are sculpted like hearts. It has nothing to do with books but I associated the story with Bookshare and the success of many of you through life. Here are PhD's, Master's, engineers, teachers, lawyers, dog trainers, housewives, husbands, mothers, fathers in spite of being blind. I am privileged being here with you. Lissi, sensei means teacher, I took to call her that affectionately because she approached me with such sweetness about my English grammar. I couldn't help to ask for more guidance on that subject. And I smiled every time Amy, Urnie, Evan, and Patrik would chide each other about Sam's cooking gear. I'm not a Tolkien fan but I will read his books; by the way Sam took his cooking gear and thew it away :-| . Is it cooking gear or pans? ;-) Best Wishes Dilsia __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
