“A Release”

As the winter persists and endless snow is forever here, one thinks back to another time about less than twenty years ago. It was a time of change and circumstances were most stressful. To release this feeling one thought of a positive way to combat it and this process work each time. With ones limited knowledge of French, which one had taken in high school for a couple of years, then corresponded with a friend in both French and Italian: thought one could put it to use. So one obtain a sheet of paper and began to write in french about the feelings then and there. At first one had written only a few words and with a strong effort on the feeling rather than the words, the words began to cascade freely openly with wonder. The stronger one felt the faster the words came. Then before one knew it, the page was filled on both sides. It is just amasing. Then one just knew the present, past and future tenses of verbs, not the subjuctive or conditional. So with the nouns one had known, it was easy to make oneself clear in content. At that time one knew at least nearly three thousand words this including the parts of speech.  One would script ones feelings on this paper and soon before long it became a tablet of pages. One would only script when one was stressed at the time never when one wasn’t. It was the beginning of a learning process. Then at another time when attempting to learn Italian, one would sing a song by Harry Chavin and translate the adaptation into Italian. It really wasn’t much but again a learning process of self achievement and self improvement. Inwardly always admired persons who had the savoir faire to know another language by speaking it. However, ones pronunciation wasn’t in that venue. One could only read and write it. Maybe that is something! By any shape or form it isn’t adeptness. Only adequate in comparison.
