After a season of hard work, may I present to you my holiday gift:

The grammar overview of Relformaiké, a brand-new language inspired by the Romance family of Indo-European -- with lots of agglutinative influences thrown in for good measure. Or, Esperanto and Lojban just went out together -- and found someone else to adopt.

Six or seven cases (Nominative/Absolutive, Accusative [only in pronouns], Ergative, Identificative, Genitive, and the elusive Proprietive) -- plus dozens of adpositions doubling as pseudo-cases. (Anyone know a better term for the likes of these?) Three genders (- e/- o/- a), Adjective/Adverb markers (- i/- u), a verb conjugation system starting with - at, tense prefixes pé -/plé -/fé -/péfé -...and that's only the beginning.

Also, can you spot the references to Bellwether and Judy/Stu Hopps (whether or not you're a Zootopia fan)?

Feel free to send me any concerns/heads-up matters, and I'll get to them next time around. Until we meet again...Joiyeuzi Kristnaizfeste, toutiènes!

#WhatLiesAground

In tomorrow's run: Whether Adanson performs at the Queen's Park Oval...

or whether they wait it all out till New York next week. Also, stay tuned for extra highlights from the Easter Ball; up to four furry picks; and a belated requiem for a long-serving Plus tool.

Meanwhile, a profile panorama change remains on my docket, as winter in New England is long over. (Again, blame the conlang/mapping/relocation commitments of late.)

On the way later this month: One or two belated obits, and another bundle of story notes for Unspooled #1. Not to mention a lot of the stuff I never got to last year (which I listed before December 31's sign-off). That said, let the catchup continue.

If you've seen Zootopia for yourself (as I already have, twice on the big screen), then please let me know in the comments. And remember what Judy taught you, kids: Change...starts...with you! (WDAS' 55th is currently streaming on Netflix USA.)

Expressing condolences to the family and friends of those killed and injured in Brussels, Lahore, Kyushu, Ecuador, Orlando, Istanbul, Dallas, Nice, Munich, Sagamihara, Italy, Louisiana, Jamaica, and Haiti. (And now, Istanbul, Damascus, and Westminster.)

For now, this is your Once and Future Captain speaking. Till we meet again, it's diè wåde, ovwa and out...​

And to all Dominicans and sensible Americans everywhere: Stay strong...for We Are One.​

REWARDED
Grass Creek, Victoria, Australia

After a scary climb down the cliff face to the beach at Grass Creek, I was rewarded with a view of a most interesting part of the Great Ocean Road. The rock formations were amazing and provided me with a large array of photographic compositions, each more interesting than the last. The rocks looked like molten lava, swirling around the white sandy beach and leaving flat areas for the sea to explore as the high tide pushes ashore. I loved the combination of rocks, sand and sea, to which was added a colourful sunrise to make the most perfect morning photoshoot. Now I just have to figure out a way to climb back to the car!

12 Days on Crete
Remembering the journey in June 2005 ...
Day 8 (2005-06-20)

As on the day before, we took the road to Rethymno, but after passing Spili we turned left to the Kourtaliotiko Gorge. Then we reached the monastery Piso Moni Preveli (on the photo).

In the afternoon we drove to Plakias. Before returning to our hotel in Kalamaki, we made a detour to the village Matala, located a few km south of Kalamaki.

Day 1765

Good night, folks. Sorry, still wasn't my day to snap back; too much research on my end. Once I snap back tomorrow, I'll start off with the "Rest of the Best" as presented by Adanson (plus the fate of their Port-of-Spain weekend); for now, it's back to the filler. Besides, an Unspooled #1 story revamp and another Relformaiké root are still up for grabs....

Onward and upward...

#WhatLiesAground

See you back tomorrow afternoon or evening...

as I try to recover from this latest round of schedule hiccups. (It's not called the "Tasklist of Death" for nothing.) Also, stay tuned for more on Adanson's Trinidad forecast (plus extra highlights from the Easter Ball); up to four furry picks; and a belated requiem for a long-serving Plus tool.

Meanwhile, a profile panorama change remains on my docket, as winter in New England is long over. (Again, blame the conlang/mapping/relocation commitments of late.)

Or, where a lot of the landscape resembles Dominica's (thus encouraging Adanson to permanently move there soon).

Porto da Cruz - Machico - Ilha da Madeira

O Porto da Cruz é uma freguesia do concelho de Machico. Essencialmente rural esta vila da Costa Norte deve o seu nome a uma cruz feita pelos marinheiros, em 1419, com paus recolhidos na ribeira. O Porto da Cruz é famoso pelo seu “vinho seco“, vinho feito a partir de uvas da casta Americana e também pela produção de cana de açúcar, da qual, ainda hoje persiste um engenho.

Or, the country Adanson stopped over during their 2016 New Year's flight to Madagascar.

I'll need some time to curate the photos; there will be some old and some new ones; expect the trickle in a couple of days.
