new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

bilingual brains

from scientific american:

'the ability to speak a second language isn’t the only thing that distinguishes bilingual people from their monolingual counterparts—their brains work differently, too. research has shown, for instance, that children who know two languages more easily solve problems that involve misleading cues. a new study published in psychological science reveals that knowledge of a second language—even one learned in adolescence—affects how people read in their native tongue. the findings suggest that after learning a second language, people never look at words the same way again.'
