Canon G10

I have this wonderful new camera that I basically don't know how to use. Finally, I decided to pay for some, three, individual lessons and I start Tuesday. Everyday I look at photos on Flickr and love love love how people document their lives. They are so into it and I want to be into it too, but I need some skills with my newly beloved camera.

Last night (new subject) I rented and watched "L'enfant," a wonderful movie that I had rented a year ago, having to solely depend upon the English sub-titles to understand it. I wanted to see if my skill level had changed. It had. I now watched it with French sub-titles and followed it pretty well. I'm wondering where I'll be at next year at this time...

S wants to be friends with me again, having forgiven me for being me, I guess. I told him that for right now I would just like to see him at the Saturday meditation meeting, and he respects that boundary. I saw him today and it was really nice. Having boundaries is something new for me. It's the theme of my life lately -- learning to set boundaries with little S, boundaries here, boundaries there.

Maintenant, il s'agit d'un tigre qui fait rage dans le caribou. Le chasseur et le chassé. Le cercle de la vie. Maintenant, c'est encore les éléphants. Les lions se préparent à les attaquer. Les éléphants sont gris et magnifiquement ridé et ont des yeux très petits.

Lentement, Mais Sûrement

Les dernières fois que j'ai parlé sur Skype avec mes amis français, j'ai remarqué une grande différence. Voilà, je commence à parler en phrases. Je ne pourrais pas dire tout à fait correctement, mais les mots qui sortent de ma bouche sont des phrases. Ce qui me rend si heureuse. J'ai l'impression que j'apprends lentement, mais sûrement ...
