December is here !

And this calls for a small update, after a longish silent.

Days continue to be too short to allow me to do all that I need to do in a way that would feel comfortable  (translation still due - even though I do now see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel - one more day to go with the outline class, kids taking turns not having school or falling sick, and the usual parade of mundane things such as : preparing meals, cajoling - or not cajoling at all - my older daughter into doing her homework, bath time, night time, all before I can sit again in front of the computer to go back to translating, writing, or trying to wrap my mind around the outlining process ; this last bit calls for a blog post, actually, and one more thing to add on my list of things to do. ) I've had to decline participating in the last two Bollywood dance classes, even though I'm sooo looking forward to doing this. My only recreation is the little time I spend on Facebook. Yeah, exactly, no comment !

Anyway, in the middle of it all, I had the pleasure of being asked to write an essay for the December issue of Paper Tigers which focuses on Religious Diversity in Relation to End-of-Year Celebrations. The title is A Wish for 2010. Do check the Paper Tigers website if you don't already know it. It's a great multicultural resource with a wealth of informations, reviews, interviews, etc...

Wonderful essay, Katia! I hope the short days of winter leave you some time for thinking, dreaming and writing.
