All kids draw. Then around age 10 or 11 they discover that they are either ‘good’ or ‘bad’ at drawing. The majority of kids aren’t ‘good’ and they lose interest in drawing forever. This is crazy. No one stops all writing when they discover they aren’t a novelist.

Gosh, never thought about drawing like that. Certainly someone who never draws because I'm 'bad' at it... Thanks for the encouragement!
Speaking of visual language… 'Imaginative and insightful, Seeing Voices offers a way into a world that is, for many people, alien and unfamiliar - for to be profoundly deaf is not just to live in a world of silence, but also to live in a world where the visual is paramount. In this remarkable book, Oliver Sacks explores the consequences of this, including the different ways in which the deaf and the hearing impaired learn to categorize their respective worlds - and how they convey and communicate those experiences to others.' https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seeing-Voices-Journey-into-World/dp/0330523643
'Studies show that sketching and doodling improve our comprehension -- and our creative thinking. So why do we still feel embarrassed when we're caught doodling in a meeting? Sunni Brown says: Doodlers, unite! She makes the case for unlocking your brain via pad and pen.
