all about Spanish

Still no new wonderful witty words this week.

The sinus crud is lingering, but that’s not the reason.

his week I’m all about Spanish.

As in, writing a curriculum for a workshop I’m teaching.

Saturday.

This Saturday.

Two days hence.

The aforementioned sinus crud interfered in no small measure

my ability to write the curriculum in a timely fashion,

and I have,

therefore,

cranked it out in the past week.

I did, oh-so-thankfully,

have the structure laid out,

the road map of what I want to convey

Also, oh-so-thankfully,

it is a four-hour workshop on

basics and fundamentals,

not a full blown “we gonna be fluent today” crash course.

It has,

as with all things I ever put my hands to,

turned out much grander than originally concepted.

And that’s okay, ’cause that’s how I roll.

So for now,

hasta la semana proxima!!

[Til next week.]

to all my adoring fans: the head cold of last week went from bad to badder, in the form of sinus infection, compounded by lack of sleep, two weeks of lack of sleep – I don’t got nothing, I got less than nothing. on the bright side, I had a delightful (yes, even feeling like crud) week with my granddaughters!!! can’t beat that!!

Not So Much

Not so much this week.

Owing to the fact of me being sick.

yuck

Just a head cold,

that started to settle into a chest cold.

It didn’t,

but I spent my week

utterly drained.

And not writing so much.

So, no dazzling blog this week.

I will, however, give tribute and honor

to our Great Nation,

 

Happy Birthday

to the U.S. of A.

Two hundred and thirty-eight years young.

The the land of the free

and

home of the brave.

I don’t guess we can have any idea

what it was like to live under a controlling monarch,

with no rights, no recourse.

However twisted and contorted and abused our nation is today,

we still have our rights, however shredded or thin they may be.

We don’t know what these men and women escaped from.

We cannot imagine the sense of freedom they felt.

And we cannot know the depth of the words they penned,

in poem, hymn, constitution, declaration.

We can, however, take their words and keep them,

know them and own them.

We can preserve our great nation.
