So, it’s been three months. It looks like I’ve taken the habit of writing a monthly report of my Toki Pona journey, so here’s the third one:
- I’ve finally somewhat finished the official book, though I’ll definitely have to revisit the later lessons and the various texts written in Toki Pona. I can read and understand these texts, rather slowly, but I definitely can.
- I’ve also spent a fair amount of time on jan Letan’s lessons, which I already recommended, especially in parallel with the official book.
- I also gave a try to the Toki Pona in 12 days videos, which inspired jan Letan. I found them equally interesting and exhausting. I wouldn’t mind if every video was twice longer and slower.
- Now I think about it, I’ve also started to read akesi seli lili, an illustrated Toki Pona book about a little dragon’s adventures. It’s constructed as increasing difficult lessons and works great for me so far.
- Last and not least, I’m now learning the sitelen sitelen non-linear hieroglyphic system, and I love it. It’s easier than I thought, and it motivated me to draw again after many, many years.
- Of course, I’m also updating my Toki Pona dictionary to support sitelen sitelen.
- And… I’ve decided to participate to Inktober using sitelen sitelen. I’ll post my drawing both here and on Mastodon.
I’ve probably forgotten a few things. I honestly thought I had spent less time on Toki Pona this past month, but apparently, it’s quite the opposite. And it still feels like the beginning of my journey…
Just in case, the various learning materials I mentioned are listed here.
