Lately, the last month or so, a number of comments have been left on my blogs, both of them, in an Asian script. I am so ignorant I don't know if it's Japanese or Korean. Somehow it doesn't look Chinese. I LOVE comments on my bogs and LOVE knowing someone is reading them. But I am totally ignorant of even how to speak an Asian language, let alone how to read its script. I'm baffled about why suddenly these comments are appearing when, over a few preceding years, I never got comments in a foreign language. So we add to ignorant and baffled, frustrated because I don't know of a program or how to use any such program to translate these comments. Obviously I cannot respond in any way but this note.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
