1. my wrist was doing a bit better today and so i got a good, long training session while waiting for a friend who was picking me for dinner. I reviewed 3C, fingerspelling, and 3D a few times. all is good and it seems that my break didn't really take me back to square one, everything seems to have come back to where it was before the break
2. not sure if I mentioned this in a previous note, but although i get the -th rule it just seems to break my flow. not sure if I have already "incorporated" the steno order in my mind, but reaching back to * just seems counterintuitive. Again, it's not that I can't do it or don't understand it, but going back in the steno order just seems to disorganize my peaceful steno order haha. but that's life in the big city, and I guess I will get used to it like I got used to the other things that didn't seem so intuitive at first
3. had an amazing meeting today with one of the largest societies for the blind in Brazil. things went really well and we're good to go. they did have a number of questions, though, and for some of them I will have to have some help from Mirabai. For example, if you are a professional stenographer and you decide to use plover, how hard would it be to connect plover to a professional steno machine? I'm using the adapted sidewinder and have never even seen a steno machine and so I couldn't really tell, although I've seen a number of discussions on the plover group. The other questions were things I will have to investigate myself, such as how would we import sidewinder keyboards in Brazil, since apparently they are not widely available. But that's a minor thing.
