thank you to everyone who contributed and to meg for such a beautiful reading! I loved how each piece illuminated something in all the others. truly a special way to move into a new year.
loved ronas thought of language as time capsule made by people who continue to speak it in a new place. many friends who speak shanghainese, mandarin, and canto feel the same where when they travel to their home country they feel like they're speaking an older version of a language that's evolved while they were gone (or were never there). caring for a language or a slang by just.. using it!!!
never thought a video call in 2020 would make me so emotional and inspired and thankful. thank you everyone, thank you meg for making it happen <3
