There really is no such thing as a private conversation among the deaf is there? This week, I had the privilege of witnessing (watching, I guess) two people, presumably one or both of them were deaf, having a full conversation over lunch.
I don’t understand their visual language, but they sure seemed to be having a wonderful conversation in which both were fully engaged.
I didn’t feel that I was eavesdropping because of course, I didn’t have any idea of what they were so enthusiastically discussing. It was only after I left and was back in my car did it dawn on me that I wished I knew what they were saying. What a joy to so fully enjoy the company of others.
