Glyph of the word 'oko'.


  • (n.) drum

Au noala oko!
“The drums are sounding!”

Notes: The frost if off the ground: Moving day is at hand.

It’s a new year, and it’s time for some news. I’ve done 731 words of Kamakawi so far, and it’s been fun. But this pace is absolutely exhausting (as evidenced by when this post and the last one went up in real time), and I can’t keep it up. There’s no way I’ll be able to put up every word of Kamakawi (there are several thousand, and I’m not even at a thousand yet), but I did vow to at least get all the foma up, and that I’ll do. Once I’ve got them all up, though, this blog will become the Kamakawi Word of the Every-So-Often-If-That (or something similar). I may drop in and do a word now and then, but there won’t be a word everyday.

That said, there’s got to be at least 200 foma left, and they don’t always fit with the caturday pictures, so there may yet be another full year of “daily” Kamakawi word posts. But I’m letting my many fan (no typo. I elea, Anatoni!) know that the end is coming. Probably some time after the new Mayan calendar begins, but it’s coming.

Thanks for following along or dropping in every now and then! It’s nice to have an online catalogue of all these glyphs, so they exist somewhere other than in my computer. Have a happy new year!

    Thank you for doing so many of the Kamakawi words.

    whenever you do them, is great. you have more important aspects of your life (such as your married life, and your work)

    have nice days and be well, always.

    didn’t notice that before – keep safe and be careful in the moving process, all three of you.

    Oh, we’re not actually moving. That was just a reference to The Secret of N.I.M.H. (the movie version; used to watch it a lot as a kid). Yeah, we’ll be here for at least five years from the day we bought, or we’ll have to pay back our tax credit! :O Anyway, as I said, though, thanks for following along, Anthony. It’s always nice to know there’s someone reading these. :)
