Opportunity for my Spanish-speaking self! Limits! –can do; indeed, I have been addressign “limits” for quite some time, ergo, “Limited Fork” –migration! Duh! cultue, amalgamation of so much; talk about me and you have to also talk about migration, and transit systems –talking about those in the book about my father and in my daily life, think Jodie Foster in “Contact”:
and my favorite part, an intergalactic reunion with her father! What I wouldn’t give to have that!
I am already looking forward to this! –Maybe I will get to be Alita Oso again; as I became in grad school in New Hampshire when I realized that my Master’s degree in “American Literature” curriculum contained only lit for the United States, and my response was not to complain, but to write a letter apologizing for my failure not to include literature of the rest of the Americas, since “US” was not specified in the degree requirements.
And the response was that I could include literature of the rest of the Americas; but these classes had to be at the graduate level, and such classes were offered only in Spanish, so my first year of grad studies, I enrolled in undergrad Spanish course, and was able to enroll in four Latin American Lit courses my second year, one of my favorite poems was “El descrubrimeiento de vidrio” — I still have that poem, writen by “Alita Oso”
who also wrote an essay I have been looking for; hope I find it before I go to Mexico City, an essay about “Alice in Wonderland Through the Looking Glass in which the Looking Glass is a Gravitational Lens” –writen in Spanish; I received an A+ on it. Guess I can write something similar again; Alita Oso wrote poems in Spaish, and I translated them into English. I “found” her lost poems; had a goood time finding them.
I could not have enjoyed myself more! The Spanish professor lived in Maine, and I would often visit her there; I recall walking on campus and those catcalls, “esos blujeannes!”esos blujeannes!” (Those bluejeans! Those blue jeans!)
I didn’t have time to learn enough Portugese also, so no Brazilian lit for me; Too bad. Welcome back, Alita Oso! (Little Winged Bear)
