Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

~ John O'Donohue ~

    Happy Spotlight day! I love your goals, way to stay positive. I'm also learning a new language. It does seem to the harder the older we get. Good luck on the challenge! emoticon

    Hope your emoticon Spotlight Day was great! Learning a second language is so good for your brain, and not easy to do as an adult. Good for you!

    emoticon Felicidades por tu español !!
    I was looking for a salsa goodie to give you, but Spark seems to have failed us there ;-) LOL
    I took Spanish for several years in school and for several years at a couple jobs, I was able to speak Spanish fairly fluently with customers and warehouse workers. Sadly now, I've lost a lot of my fluency just because I don't use it too often. I want to learn Mandarin, but I can't find a course here at the local college.
