Greetings. Here are a couple of articles that really impressed me this month.
Eda's NPR article, titled Not even water? And other things not to say to your Muslim friends during Ramadan is an excellent read.
Another impactful article is written by Ashally De La Cruz on the subject of retaining and losing languages I was moved by the line, "[...] sometimes, I need to use Google Translate just to have a conversation with my mom." As Ashally says, “Learning a new language is hard. So is keeping an old one.”

ON THE HOME FRONT
March has been the month of the Three F’s
Last year I froze some flesh for our visiting children to enjoy at Christmas. I even admit to once taking some frozen/thawing pulp on a plane when visiting a child overseas… a taste of home. Mad I know!
This month our house has been wrapped in scaffolding. Lots of clanging and banging. Painters have spruced up the outside and we’ve taken the opportunity to fix a few other bits n pieces while the scaffolding was still in place.
Take care until next time
