Reinventing vision

About a month ago, I was invited by Nola to join Migrentrepreneur Women Network (MWN) as a partner.  This has involved setting off on an adventure of reinventing (which was also the theme of the month).  I was particularly inspired by Nola’s post on creating a vision board, so much so that I made one for MWN:

It is actually quite a fun activity – imaginative and transporting, but also grounding (there’s something to gathering thoughts and images, arranging them, layering and pinning them down, and the ta-dah feeling when it all comes together in the end!)… so much so that I revisited a vision board I made last year (and added a few touches – there’s always space for more, after all):

*What do you see (of/ for yourself)?


Beyond dictionaries


I have recently read “A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary For Lovers” by Xiaolu Guo, a sensitive and beautiful account of the intimacies of language and migration.  I highly recommend it, especially if you are also trying to trace those untranslatable feelings under the skin of words.

*Any books that resonate with your experience of migration?  Do share!

*Ps I am (supposed to be) studying for my Portuguese final exam…!
