Bi-Lingual Gig

During junior and senior high, I took French in school; much to my dismay, I wasn’t a “natural” at it, despite or because of my mother’s own pronunciation, which frequently differed with my teachers’ Parisian-style “proper” French accents.  I found it difficult to feel at ease speaking in class and at home.

Seeing Through the Frost

So, I walk within my garden; it is cold; and I am chilled! I’ve still earth, but seek a memory of the birds’ last summer trill. I’ve an old tree standing there.  Will I once more see it leaf? The surrounding ground seems spent; I am filled with winter’s grief.   I suppose should I […]
