Una lingua si cheta, un populu si more. (Òlcani)

Une langue qui se tait, c’est un peuple qui meurt.

A language silenced is a people who die.

Corsica....

“It’s so good to hear from you and speaking in Corsu,” her mother said, without a single note of admonition in her tone. Liz pictured her mother standing in the kitchen in the kind of softly-draped knit outfit she so often wore. The phone would be snugged between her shoulder and ear. She’d be stirring three heaping teaspoons of sugar into the Tisane du Maquis tea she always drank before bed. She envisioned the tea tin covered with a depiction of all things Corsican, an aqua sea, spikey granite mountains, goats on a path to a village of white stucco homes huddled about a campanile, and the ground littered with citrus and all the floral bounty of the island.

“Me too. I’m sorry I’ve always fought you about that. You’ll be very happy to know it’s coming in handy.”
