  •  I surprised myself (0+ / 0-)

    After reading some comments while the speech was playing, I went to watch it and concentrating, could get the gist of it with more actual words and phrases than I would have supposed I could.

    Never studied Spanish, but know some French, grew up in the Bronx and have lived in AZ for 17 years. I think I must have picked some up by osmosis.

    Years ago with a little Yiddish I could get the gist of an article written in Afrikaans, but that was reading.

    Being attentive to the needs of others might not be the point of life, but it is the work of life. It can be ... almost impossibly difficult. But it is not something we give. It is what we get in exchange for having to die. - Jonathan Safran Foer
