No matter what language it is in, a smiling face and a friendly word is always welcome – especially if you can understand what they are saying! There are so many reasons to learn a new language. Maybe you have just decided you want to learn French. Or maybe you set a goal to learn Spanish as your new year’s resolution, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. You’re going on a trip to Germany, but you haven’t learned German yet! Your friend is learning Japanese and you want to learn it too.
Surprise you’re friends when they visit from Israel, or please your family when you pass you’re Spanish test. Learning a new language will give you a new sense of empowerment, and a new way to connect to people.
For now farewell, or, as Mark Antony would say, Vale!

You’re car rumbles, making gravelly noises as it rolls to a stop. You put your foot on the pedal, the engine snarls, but the car doesn’t move. You sigh, you were supposed to fill up your car at the last gas station – your car knew it then, and you know it now. But someday . . .

Alright, today I would like to stimulate some discussion. I’ve been trying to think of an interesting book to discuss, and decided to write on several of my favorite tragedies. The kind of stories that leave your chest aching because it was so close to being something great – or it is a great book, but in a way that leaves you yearning.

Intimidating is the word. You’ve never actually met the man, but just hearing his name makes you wince. The worst part of it is, he’s been dead for years.This man could be Milton, Socrates, Plato, Shakespeare, or even Charles Dickens. Maybe the last time you read Dickens was the night before your ten page paper was due on his book, “A Tale of Two Cities” – back in high school. Or perhaps you’ve attempted the feat of reading Shakespeare or Milton, but just haven’t been able to get into it enough to keep going. – Maybe you love to read the Iliad, but just haven’t had time lately!
No excuses, now is the time to take that step and listen to that book you’ve been meaning to, but just haven’t gotten around to reading yet.

On a plate before you sits a large, moist, chocolate cupcake with thick dark brown frosting and sprinkles. Just smelling it nearly hypnotizes you. On the other side of the plate is a carrot and a celery stick. Which are you going to pick up and devour? - the cupcake, right?
