  1. I volunteer at Sonrisas Therapeutic Riding (http://www.sonrisasriding.org/ ) where we have a client who is both deaf and blind. He is amazing. I originally wanted to write a story about someone who lying about being deaf. But after I read about the politics going on in the 1880’s regarding American Sign Language, I thought I could write a story to educate persons of the conflicting ideas.
