Private Conversations

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.
