Full moon rising

Full moon rising over Ar Gerveur

I saw the full moon rise tonight behind my house. It was a large, stunning yellow ball. I ran in and got my camera so I could share it with you.

Yesterday’s moonrise over Kemper–which I saw as I was heading home from my internship–was gorgeous as well. (No camera with me then.) I started to write a haiku about that one, as it was so lovely in the context of that elegant city of rivers and architectural riches. Once I polish it, I might share it with you all, depending upon how it turns out.

I'm a linguist and a writer, with a passion for the Breton language, Celtic languages in general, and endangered language communities who engage in revitalization efforts. I've published some articles about the Breton language situation in some academic journals, and I'm planning to publish more in the near future. I spent most of the last decade moving around--first to Santa Barbara (grad school), then Colorado (teaching), and then Brittany (researching the Breton language revitalization movement and improving my Breton speaking skills)--and now I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Even though I am living far from Brittany at this point, I still keep in touch with my friends and colleagues in the Breton-speaking world, and I'm still involved in language revitalization issues.

  1. Lovely! We had a particularly beautiful moonrise last night too. I didn’t have the camera with zoom handy, but it was just perfect in the pinks and purples of the winter sunset over Kite Hill in San Francisco. I grabbed a photo of it with my phone. Interesting coincidence. Nice that the moon is providing “global service” for romantic snapshots šŸ™‚
