Happy Feast of Cyril & Methodius!

The Baška tablet, written in Glagolitic, circa 1100.

It's mid February and as usual it's time to celebrate (among other things) languages and learning as Feb 14 is Cyril and Methodius day, dedicated to the brothers who created the Glagolitic alphabet, the first! They're patron saints of Europe, and of several eastern European countries, and so are excellent figureheads for a festival of learning, alphabets, languages and international cooperation. Take some time today to hug a linguist in your life, read a good book, learn a language, and reach out across borders. The world needs these things, now as much as - perhaps more than - ever. Have a lovely and learningful day!

The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...
