Glyph of the word 'emimu'.


  • (v.) to be born
  • (n.) birth
  • (adj.) newborn, having just or recently been born

Ka emimu nakanaka oi’i kiko io mou ulili.
“My little sister was born ten years ago today.”

Notes: Happy birthday to my little sister! :D

Unfortunately, as with last year, I’m not done with her children’s book. :(

Oh, and for those that don’t know, I write and illustrate a children’s book for her every year. The illustrating is what takes the most time (small sample of a quarter of one page below). It can take two months. I’ve finished one page. :oops:

Sample of Crazy Coyote Rescues the Sun.

Bleh. I’ll get it done, eventually…

Incidentally, this word was named after my little sister. Or, rather, not this word, but the word from which it derives, emi. See, my little sister’s middle name is Emi, and since the glyph show a little person being born, I thought emi would be an appropriate word for “person”. And so it was. (In fact, Kamakawi and my little sister were born around the same time, come to think of it…)

Anyway, here’s to her! Been glad knowing her these ten years. She’s shaping up to be a fine little human. :)
