see

I feel more than I can see.
I feel soft blankets brushing against my face,
a light breeze rustling through my hair.
I feel cool grass on an early spring morning,
my fingers grasping at the dew covered blades.
I feel love and anger, hurt and healing,
peace and forgiveness and sometimes hatred
but rarely ever nothing.
Sometimes all I see is darkness,
uncertainty of where I’ll go or who will be with me.
My vision is fogged by the knowledge
that everything will change, and I don’t know
how long I will feel the things I feel now.
I hope the darkness is wrong.
I hope I never see the day I can’t feel
your body heat next to me on a cold winter day.
I hope I never stop feeling my lips turn up
into a smile as I see you approaching.
I hope I see you clearly for the rest of my days,
and never walk through darkness
without hearing your footsteps right there beside me.
—  a foggy morning // c.r.h.

The Szeged Synagogue is a synagogue in Szeged, Hungary. It is a 1907 building designed by the Jewish Hungarian architect Lipót Baumhorn (1860–1932,), whose work is considered to contain the finest examples of the unique fin de siècle Hungarian blending of Art Nouveau and Historicist styles sometimes known as Magyar style. It served Szeged’s large Neolog community.

how to build a sentence!!

i was taught back in freshman year of high school that there are two ways you can structure a sentence. for example:

american sign language(ASL)

TIME+SUBJECT+VERB+OBJECT

this structure is commonly called glossing.

say i pick a sentence from a song 

“i just cant stop loving you.”

by glossing, you have a reorganized sentence.

“I NOT STOP LOVE YOU”

there is also active and passive signing.

if the subject is your topic , you are using an active voice.

“I EAT CANDY”

if the object is your topic you are using a passive voice.

“CANDY, I EAT”

fun fact- a lot of people tend to use an active voice because of how similar it is to English grammar.

a topicalized sentence is using the object of the sentence as the topic and introducing it as a “yes/no question expression” ending with a comment.

1. topicalized

“YOUR CANDY? I EAT YESTERDAY”

your candy is the topic and the sentence is in object-verb-subject word order.

 2.Non-topicalized

“ I ate YOUR CANDY YESTERDAY”

woahhh kaylee, you made an error. why is ate not capitalized but the rest of the sentence is?

well first off, i didn’t make an error. second, words that have a sign for them such as “SOUR” are in caps. words without a sign such as “of, ate,ran,” can be finger spelled but then you'd be using SEE instead of ASL. there aren’t past tense words, that’s why you say what time of day it is!! “YESTERDAY, I RUN” or “I RUN YESTERDAY”.

either way is fine.


vs

signing exact english

that is exactly what it sounds like. SEE is based on signs drawn from asl but is expanded using words that give a complete visual representation. “the girl had soft, silky hair.”

thats all i can think of atm so if you have anything else on asl and see let me know/add on. i might add on a bit later tho after i go shower brb
