Spelling and grammar

It is not difficult to realize, even for the untrained eye, that english is not my mother language. Spanish is. I have been “using” english for eight years now, but I have improved very little. Believe me, when you are as old as I am and, on top of that, are not that good with languages, getting where I have gotten today is quite an accomplishment, although one that leaves plenty space for improvement.

So, you will see misspellings and grammatical errors on my entries. If corrections are sent to me I will gratefully edit things accordingly. But understand that writing the way I do is what makes me unique (even though I belong the a great bunch just like me, including fellow Americans —born in America, that is, not naturalized).

I wish I could write like her, or like him, him, him or him. Sigh… maybe one day.
