A Natural High

I spoke Chinese with a couple of small children tonight - a two-year-old and his jiejie, older sister (who is four). The children can actually speak English but are partial to their mother's native tongue. Rarely does anything bring me to feel so joyful - I think I am glowing.

I have discovered in the past year that there are two ways for me to acheive a natural high: one, exercise; and two, having a conversation with someone in another language.
