The Tragic Sense of Life in Men And Nations Title from Unamuno.

Happy June - and what a summer! Record rain fall has preserved my mind from migranes and hallucinations of divinity. Summer classes have preserved my embalmed, pickled, and thoroughly petrified extracurricular activities. And yet, wondrously, only one week to go and then I am done with Spanish, which is a thing I never really liked - but admittedly it is a bit of fun even if you don't like it.

You see, and this isn't just me here, talking in a foreign language does things to your mind. I've been a language user for years and have always been bowled over from what a good chat can do to me - but another language . . . is more like an out of body experience of the mind than a hallucination of the tongue.

To embrace it I would like to share my new favorite Spanish idiom (narrowly beating out the phrase, "The Devil is the devil because he is old") - in espanol:
Pensar en la inmortalidad del cangrejo
 
that is ... as the cartoon lovingly illustrates:
