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!

(Originally announced at the Small Discussions roundtable at r/conlangs on the night of Christmas Eve; locally posted on Sunday at https://plus.google.com/103283675665371670119/posts/X8mY3haSF5B.)

Wish I could cram in more Boxies and Funnies...

but time's almost run out. (Either that, or it's back to Relformaiké plus Paradise 60 until next we meet.)

On the way soon (while I continue to resettle): Details on how well the Ubuntu trial went, plus another Marigot Notebook entry or two 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), plus Adanson's long-belated followup at Charleston. 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.)

To donate to Erika relief funds, please visit www.opm.gov.dm/?p=1058 or www.youcaring.com/red-cross-of-dominica-421257.

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.​

冰川来客

旅行拍摄其乐趣在于记录与发现大地之美,捕捉美丽的形象和发现旅行中的特殊见闻。而在有限的时间里进行有计划的拍摄,是摄影中的大部分乐趣。当镜头对准旅行中的意外发现,是不是有心跳的感觉。旅行中的风光题材与人像题材因拍摄理念的不同,会产生自己的拍摄个性,那么要注重拍摄平时拍不到的题材和内容成为重点,这是旅拍中增添乐趣和光彩的所在。

登FOX冰川的登机因为天气原因,我们是最后一班,2小时后雨雾弥漫中告知不能准时下山,而雨很大,通知告知有可能在冰川上过夜,此刻天色已暗。在刺骨的冷风中脸上被冷雨打的发麻,天哪,难道没有步行下山之路?回答是绝对没有。脏兮兮的冰川在暗色中开始包围着渺小的人群,有时候在自然界中人真的很渺小无助,你不得不这么想。冰川两侧的黑色砂石是在极其恶劣天气下砸落在洁白蔚蓝色的冰川上,而后又被冰雪融化在冰川的浅表层,刻下气候变迁的印记。这是不在现场不知道的故事,可接下来又会发生什么故事呢?大约2小时后一阵山风徐徐吹来,山下电台告知直升机已经出发飞来,我们每人脸上的笑容随着欢呼声荡漾开来。

Ironwood in the Grain

In the rain and
in the mist,
we have reasons
to believe,
there is
something
falsified
and intended
to deceive.

In the dark and murk
and storm
we find puzzlement
surrounds.
And whatever
may be true
surely
nothing new
is found.

Ancient lies and
recent truths
entertain us
like before.

We want to think that
we're
not fooled,
But we're just
as foolish,
maybe more.

For what little have
we learned
as years
by thousands
strut their stuff,
and we
swallow the
same lies,
delighted they sound
good enough.

I remember a few days ago...

when my former home state and the rest of the Northeast received a nasty start-of-spring blizzard.
