Postby Solong » Fri Nov 09, 2018 3:37 pm

When Joseph walked into the room, his brothers and sisters stamped their feet on the floor.
Tears came to his eyes.

marcing relevant? Stamping as a greeting? As a salute? As a sign of respect? Are we talking about blood brothers? Did someone die? Do his brothers and sisters usually stamp their feet on the floor when seeing him?
Tears = tears of pain? Tears of resignation? tears of fear? tears of happiness? tears of emotion? tears due to the light of the sun?

Do they stamp both feet on the floor? Just one foot each? Were there more than 20 brothers and sisters? Religion relevant? Sport? Haka and rugby?
Did J reply by stamping his feet/foot on the floor too? Are physical issues on feet/legs relevant?

To be sure...his = Joseph's eyes?

marcing relevant? No. Stamping as a greeting? Yes. As a salute? As a sign of respect? Also these, to some degree. Are we talking about blood brothers? Not necessarily Did someone die? No. Do his brothers and sisters usually stamp their feet on the floor when seeing him? No, this was a special occasion.
Tears = tears of pain? Tears of resignation? tears of fear? tears of happiness? Yope.tears of emotion?Yes; no to the others. tears due to the light of the sun?

Do they stamp both feet on the floor? Just one foot each? I think both feet, but one at a time.Were there more than 20 brothers and sisters? Not sure, but probably. Religion relevant?Yessish. Sport? No.Haka and rugby?
Did J reply by stamping his feet/foot on the floor too? Again, not sure, but could have. Are physical issues on feet/legs relevant? If I understand you, nobody has physical issues with his/her feet or legs.

To be sure...his = Joseph's eyes? Yes.

Was the tear because he was moved? Moved by the respect he received? Did he anticipate the salutation? In this form?
Did he expect his brothers and sisters were even there? Did he work long and hard to arrive at some achievement? Sacrificed in terms of time / money? Did anyone relevantly become disabled? Was there an achievements mostly unrecognised?

Are they real brothers and sisters?

Special occasion = a special occasion designed for J? E.g. his birthday? Or maybe a generic party? A religious holiday? A celebration?

Is the sound produced by the feet stamping to the ground relevant? Cleaning up shoes relevant? Is the age range of the brothers and sisters (which are HAM and HAF right?) relevant? Relevant if they were wearing shoes or not? The type of floor? What they wanted to communicate to J is: congratulations? Respect?

Relevant which type of shoes? Could it have worked with bare feet? Relevant the dressing code of the brothers and sisters? Dud they stamp their feet on the floor repetitedly? Or maybe just once? If the latter, in order to crusch something?

Were they amputees? People who were born without all of their limbs? Was Joseph an amputee? Had he been born missing a limb?

Was the stamping an encouragement? Like a, “we made it, you can too” sort of thing?

Did they stomp the feet at random? Were some sort of code involved where the stomping could be translated into sentences? Is the person disabled Joseph? Was he blind? deaf? Unable to walk? Was the congratulation on achieving something despite the disability? On getting an ability back through technology?

Do his brothers and sisters also share the same disability? A similar one?

Unable to walk? He can walk. Was the congratulation on achieving something despite the disability? No, but sort of OTRT.On getting an ability back through technology?

Do his brothers and sisters also share the same disability? A similar one? Some of them have a similar one.

**************************SPOILER*******************
I have friends, a married couple, who are associated with an ASL ministry, even though they are not deaf themselves, and they pass ASL stories along to me. One of the congregants is a gentleman who is both blind and deaf. He 'hears' the sermons, etc., by 'tactile signing.' A few months ago, he had an operation, not related to his disabilities. His friends visited him in the hospital, and brought him reading matter in Braille, but he was unable to attend services for several weeks. When he finally returned, they wanted to greet him, but a round of applause would not be perceived, and waving their hands (the ASL version of a 'standing ovation,') would also be useless. Instead, they stamped their feet on cue. Joseph could feel the vibrations, understood their intent, and was very touched

BTW, I am learning some signs in ASL. Here is one: You make the sign of the cross, then with your right forefinger pointing down, draw a circle in the air about 3" in diameter. The cross = Mexican tequilla, the circle = the salt around the rim of the glass, and that's how you order a Margarita. Very religious :P
