After 8 hours of intensive language instruction, on the 3rd floor of a deco-style building in the colonia muy fresa la condesa, slipping back into my mother tongue is like breaking the elastic meniscus of a body of water after holding my breath for record-breaking minutes. Cada día I gain more lung capacity, siempre disfrutando the bizarro-world of immersion, but the cold, fresh air that hits my throat is when the pace of thinking and the pace of communicating become one, my words transferring from my brain to the page like a silvered, viscous pedazo de pensamiento going into Dumbledore’s pensieve.
