Language of Lines

me dancingThe lines I work with represent my language. Because I’m multilingual, I know the same word or phrase can’t be translated exactly. So when I try to speak, it’s often in a mix of different languages—and that’s when i run into trouble.

My earliest memory was when I was with my friend talking about how our mom’s were dressed. I wanted to say my mom was dressed conservatively. She overheard me, and I had actually said she was dressed like an old woman. She was hurt. 

I’m more careful with my words now, and I let my art express my feelings in a language of lines.
