Note from Uncle Dale: Year One

Hello everyone! It’s official. This blog is one year old. Since the first post, made from my bed as I recovered from surgery, about 50,000 of you have dropped by about to say hello over 120,000 times.

It’s always good to see you!

I have met a lot of you in person at workshops, conventions and through webinars. I will be lucky enough to see more of you this summer, both nationally and internationally.

We have had great discussions on what it means to interpret, to be an interpreter. We have laughed and cried together as we learn to communicate across cultures.

You have shared the quirks and joys of what we do and thank you for that!

We have talked about how law impacts the communities we serve, how we see ourselves, how we are defined by the world around us and what is expected of us as interpreters

We have looked at skill development as well as personal development. We have exercised our mental, emotional and actual muscles.

This next year will be bigger and better.

The non-profit I am establishing to support certification will be up and running soon, the book is moving along, and the Goddesses will introduce more swag.

Most important, if we do this right, we will learn more about ourselves!

Thank you for everything you are, everything you do and, as always, thanks for stopping by!

These blogs (I have two) began as a series of sayings I use to teach interpreting workshops, and political diatribes on Facebook. They moved from Facebook to this blog site: 1. as a way to remove them from my head (cuts down on the noise in there); and, 2. to give a better home to both my "less serious and satire laden posts" and my "more serious and satire laden posts." I guess it's up to you to decide which is which.
