I struggle to translate Christiane Link's site, Behindertenparkplatz, every time my Google Alerts send me a note that there is something there that I would appreciate -- if only I had not forgotten all my college German.

Maybe it was listening to the German resonances in the Yiddish dialogue of Mark Harelik's touching play The Immigran at the San Jose Repertory Theater last night but probably it was the fact that Katja Stokely translated the challenge but I gave it another try.

Here is her invitation (in German) and my response in English.
