Well, seems like I inverted yesterday’s Inktober prompt with today’s prompt. Hopefully if I invert them again balance will be restored and the universe will not collapse.
I am not sure I would have gotten "ilo kon kute" until after I read the translation...and then it made perfect sense. :)
@RussSharek Haha, I think I rewrote it maybe a dozen of times before getting something satisfying (and it’s not totally satisfying.) "ilo pi wawa kute" was also a candidate, and so was "ilo pi kon toki". But the pi wasn’t really needed and would have cluttered the drawing, and "kon kute" seemed to make a bit more sense. "ilo toki" is more common for phones, and "wawa" more suitable for radioactivity.
It’s funny how half of the work is thinking about how to write before even starting to write.
The difference between what you say and what you meant being a part of the meditation.
@RussSharek Yes, definitely. I like how you bring this back to meditation. I’ve started to practice secular meditation a few weeks ago, and I find it much harder than drawing, yet it provides something similar. It’s not the same kind of focus or thoughts patterns... but it feels the same, it touches the same inner spaces, even if it’s used in different ways.
There's definitely connections to explore there.
Incidentally, I've used "ilo kute" and "ilo kalama musi" in the past, though the latter doesn't necessarily differentiate between a radio and instruments.
Perhaps it's an ijo kalama, and a musical instrument would be an ilo kalama (musi), as you actually use an instrument as a tool.
@ice jan walo li lawa
@casey jan walo li kute ala, li nasa.
@ice I LOVE this series 🖤
@neauoire Thanks a lot :) I'm also gathering them in a thread on my Toki Pona forum: https://tokipona.lectronice.com/d/18-taso-pimeja-sitelen-inktober-2020
@ice These are GREAT!!
@dualhammers Thanks, glad you like them :) I'm enjoying the process a lot, thinking about what to write and how to write it takes as much time as actually drawing it, it's quite a meditative thing.
@ice mi kama sona e toki pona. sitelen sina li pona tawa mi. pona!
@milofultz sina pona a!
@ice I think I said it already, but these are awesome
@whtrbt Thanks a lot, glad you like them :)
I really like this one.
Do you have a good resource for learning the sitelen sitelen? You've got me inspired.
I’m also using the Toki Utala app to learn the glyphs, and I find the sitelen sitelen SVG generator linked on Jonathan Gabel’s website very useful to test different layouts and get a quick view of what works.
I've never heard of the toki utala app. Link?
@RussSharek Well, I’ve just checked and it seems it has been removed from both Google Play and the App Store, and that the author’s Toki Pona mini website has disappeared as well :/ No idea what happened, it was still up a couple of months ago. Seems like I’ve one more reason to make my own similar app.
Doubly so if you can make it free and put it on fdroid or similar.
@RussSharek Oh it will be free for sure, but I won’t make a native app, it will be a single HTML file (which reminds me I still need to do that for my dictionary.)
Better for more people. I like it.
@ice mi wile kama sona e sitelen sitelen taso mi pilin e ni: "linja mute! mi ken ala sitelen e ni!" a a a
