Why do I blog?

There are many good reasons for blogging,
And one just entered my head.
If a person can't blog while they're living,
Then how the heck can they blog when they're dead?

Hi Bob. Of course I agree with everyone else. Of course your funny too. The reason I'm here is to let you know that I did look up Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. She was definitely before her time. All she wanted to do was write and be free to do what she loved. That is probably why she went to the convent where she did all of her poems and writings. Thanks for introducing me to her and I have to admit, it does resembler her a little. Thanks.

I crave and relish your insights into language and culture. Being relatively new to living in Mexico, just starting my 4th year, it all helps. I enjoy tremendously that you do ingles y español.
Keep up the good work!
Muchisimas Gracias

I really appreciate the kind words from the readers of my blog. Thanks everyone!

I remember that when I had been living in Mexico about the same time that you have that I was just coming out of the fog. So many people say the Spanish is easy but the truth is to speak and understand it well takes a long time and a lot of hard work. The best course of action is active and proactive and not passive and retroactive. I learn something new every day and I carry three by five cards in my shirt pocket and scribble down new words to look up and memorize later. I am always pestering people to explain things that I don't understand. I remember how frustrating it was for me at times and I try to pass on some of what I learned to help others. In a few years you will be doing the same thing so keep after it. Dig down and capture this language and make it yours :)
