Mensagem:  I was about 10 when my family moved close to the border with Mexico.  I started learning Spanish not because of some great scheme or life plan but because I wanted to communicate with a neighbor who spoke English as well as I speak Bengali, Eskimo, and Swahili.  It has led to so many adventures and wonderful experiences and friendships over the years.  There is a proverb in Japanese that says "A closed book is but a block of wood."  A language that is not being used is about as usual as a hook without bait, a cld bottle of Brahma been on a cold day without an opener, or an invitation to a churrasco that you cannot accept.  It is so easy to find books in English.  I would go nuts if I could not read in my mother language.  And those books are just sitting there, begging us to read them and become less ignorant.  Tonight I am motivated to take my own advice and return to languages I have studied but have not used in quite some time.  Thanks!
