      Interesting. A zippy personal essay about language. And communication between humans. Some of my favorite topics.

      Words are hard. Communication is hard. We do it all day every day, but we rarely stop to think about it at such a deep level. Especially people like me who only speak one language. I love to read about polyglot life and I wish my Spanish was stronger. Would be a good New Years resolution... but nahh - enough on my plate already right now. ;P

      Big cheers to people who speak multiple languages! And double-big cheers to those who raise kids that way. A beautiful gift.
