I am experimenting with pressure, placement, and alignment. It is much like any art, really.
Also, it is a curious thing to write a page of text and then write a level of Braille on top of it/through it.
Reminds me of the scene in Children of Dune when Irulan and the Bene gesserit have a full and coherent verbal conversation while also communicating a separate conversation through hand signals at the same time. That takes skill.
Also, the text + Braille reminds me of the many levels of communication we all engage in daily. We use all of our senses individually to interact with others in a single moment. The difference seems to me to be that in normal communication we try to piece facets together and make a whole. Secret battle language or text + Braille split up messages to be processed independently but also simultaneously. With only one brain, I, like a computer with a single CPU, can only focus on one thing at a time, though. O_o;
Also, I still can't get over how much better Japanese Braille writers and styluses are. :)
