I’ve been wed 35 years to a woman who lacks the talent or interest in foreign languages that I have, but I admit that I was often attracted to anyone, romantically or not, who spoke another language. More than one relationship started based on that, without much additional information.

I know it looks stupid, but I just needed to enter that world by any door I could find.

I occasionally write fiction and also about creativity, loving, language learning and travel. I’m a longtime painter and reader.
