Latin is for Lovers

"I'm not dead," this language keeps saying to us.  Even though I've had enough Latin to teach first and second-year courses (2004-06) and could forage my way through Testamenta et Vetus et Novum, I wouldn't by any stretch call myself proficient, as many students from Wyoming Catholic College could say.  Call it a bucket-list item--I'd really enjoy immersing myself in the Mother Tongue once again, to the point of easy conversation and composition.  Of course, nothing's stopping me from doing what I can right here and now.
