    Thanks so much for the mention. I had a fan moment, I must admit. As a Spanish native speaker, I especially connected with the article on writing on a second language. I had more than one “aha” and “yep” moments while reading it. Like I tell my bestie, if only you could understand Spanish, you would fully experience my humor (which is so much better than my ESL one). Take care & stay warm.
