I am trying to cite the website in a paper, would you be able to let me know who the author of this blog post is and what date it was published
Hi Monique and sorry for my late reply. The author is me, (Lorenz Khazaleh) and the published date is 2.4.2006. I recently changed the layout, maybe I should make this information more visible.

I am working on a short piece of what some would call fantasy fiction, but I would rather think of it as being about relationships in an expanded reality, which extends beyond deafness. At one point in my life I was suddenly blind in one eye. I still have lots of scar tissue that create blind areas in that eye. My eye doctor seems to like telling me that I will never have “normal” vision again. She repeats this mantra whenever I visit her. I have considered learning Braille.
I can imagine total blindness. It is whiteness you can’t see through, not the darkness people imagine. I can’t imagine deafness. I used to play the cello. I love music and language. Sign language would be a great language to learn, especially since I live in a town with a famous school for the deaf. I am a writer. I try to imagine that which I have not experienced. Rush Limbaugh has often said no one can imagine deafness. He has bilateral cochlear implants. Even then he bases what he hears on what has heard in the past. He must have the memory of a song in order to “hear” that song.
Now I am rambling. Help me if you can, or if you are willing. Otherwise, watch for a story about a young family traveling America at : rememberroxy.tumblr.com or at notesfromacrowdedmind.wordpress.com domain: the-crowded-mind.wordpress.com
Read “Dance of Death” it might still be available at Medium.com or one of the other sites. I’m really bad at uploading content.
