I used to..

..go around with the entirety of modern Arabic in my handbag! Now I am just going to have my own tiny dictionary plus the book I write in every day.

As I drove to school today I picked phrases I wanted to write: The field is yellow, the birds are black...but then found myself wanting to be able to write: My friend's husband is dead, my French grandmother is dead..a whole litany of this. Where does it all come from?

Now I need my formal dictionaries in order to find the words I actually want for my small one. They are upstairs, the other things are in the car and I am in the kitchen. I need long arms to reach out to get them all!
