I can remember a time when I didn't know where Scotland was didn't know that Gaelic existed. Now it is a language that I speak everyday. I can't imagine my life now without it.
I don't remember what the exact beginning was, the very first tiny thing that started my life down this road. I remember some of the mile stones along the way but not that first tiny spark.
I don't know what that spark might be for someone else. What the tiny thing is that might make take their life down a different path, a path that might include Gaelic. But I figure that in order for someone to travel down that path there does need to be something. And I think that Gaidhlig is beautiful and precious and worthy of acknowledgement and support. So if I can share that with people even if it is just a comment at the gas station across the pumps or a flyer left in a hotel lobby or an overheard conversation it could be that spark and who knows what that might grow to be. That is my inspiration for this project.
