Fleeting Thoughts

Thought that crossed my mind while my ligaments and bones creaked as I walked across the room - "ya estoy viejito, but I can't quit"
Bi-lingual, yes I am.
On a mountain bike trip in the Chihuahuan desert long ago I held the attention of some children as I spoke to them in Spanish. They were also bi-lingual. I asked them to not let go of their bilingualism. Speaking two or more languages I said, allows you to also think in two, or more languages. Thus, giving you the ability to think in a wider spectrum. They smiled at me and each other as I rode away into the desert mountains.
