An interesting question that I have discussed with friends on occasion. I
am now working in a school that has an excellent and rare deaf program.
Students are fully mainstreamed and have sign laguage aids with them. I
enjoy watching the aids translate, its really quite eloquent and well as effective. I would dreadfully miss reading, looking
at different handwriting and fonts that give character to literature. I
would miss creating art, and experienceing art. I think I could see music
better than I could hear a sunset. also, Im a visual learner. If i see it,
i remember it, if I hear it...well, Ill just say that i bring a pad of
paper and pen with me everywhere. Though Im sure if I lost my sight, i
would become a better auditory learner, i now enjoy the methods i have
spent many years learning (how to learn). I too am grateful everyday that
I have my eyes and ears are fairing pretty well. As an artist with many
other physical ailments, I have learned to take pride in creative
solutions, exploratory methods, and lots of patience. The kids I work with
are quite inspiring as well.

Good question.
Take care,
