Family matters have obliged me to cancel my planned trip to Honduras next month, but I’m consoling myself with expanding my vocabulary and working on my verbs. One fantastic (macanudo) idiom I’ve been taught is the Latin American expression for giving birth, dar a luz. (To give to light.) What a great poetic expression, that each new person coming into the world is a gift from a mother to a world very much in need of more light.
