— communicating clearly about the failure to communicate

What is the widely acclaimed play “Spring Awakening”
of deaf & hearing cast on the Broadway is all about?
About the failure to communicate, which is the
play plot – yet these deaf and hearing actors
communicate this fact with the audience! A bit
of an irony here and there.



— a strange job description

A deaf person, himself a graduate of a Singaporean
university, said he has a job. The title is
full-time professional volunteer. This is strange.
To volunteer is to help, for no pay. To volunteer
full time means at least 8 hours per day. But to be
a professional means getting paid. This job
title is confusing!
