This paper links subjective individual experience of bilingualism to changes arising from colonialism and globalisation. It uses subjective memory to grasp such worldwide phenomena as linguistic and cultural loss. Briefly linking a recollection from the Northern Territory, Australia, to early bilingualism and a lifelong advocacy for Gaelic languages and cultures, evident from its title, the paper shows how divergent examples cohere in a broader framework, aiming at ways to stem the effects of the Anthropocene by developing sustainable, future-oriented societies.
