Find a common noun in a foreign language, preferably of an object, person, or concept that originates from the culture or country in which the language is spoken. Some good examples: bodhrán, dupatta, Zeitgeist. Now, write about the object, idea, or thing. Describe it. Or use it in a narrative. It’s up to you.
