A wonderful resource for anyone who cares…well done Caroline.
It was lovely to meet you at PURE. I have a poem that is secondarily about a tree, which I was reminded of when I read your Nov. 3 blog. I’ll send it to you separately.
I love the splash page photo of the reservoir on your webiste — that’s a view I had countless times — it reminded me that for many years I lived on E. 90th Street and often went there for exercise. Cheers to you.
Hi, I am Joanie Choremi’s brother and she told about your cool website. Just saying hello and I like your page. Maybe we will meet in the future.
Can I add that Esperanto is far from “utopian” – Esperanto is a practical proposition.
Esperanto is indeed a living language.. More people speak Esperanto than Welsh, yet many people denigrate Esperanto whereas they would not denigrate Welsh.
One thing that has held the language back has been the persecution of Esperanto speakers by both Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Interesting then that although both these two individuals are dead, Esperanto lives on.
An interesting video can be seen at http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=_YHALnLV9XU Professor Piron was a former translator at the United Nations. A glimpse of the language can be seen at http://www.lernu.net
Hi Brian. Thanks for the input. The New Yorker article actually waxes poetic on Esperanto, mentioning that it has a rich body of literature. I’m not denigrating Esperanto or any other language – just asking whether the limitations are not in our languages but in our hearts!
great post Caroline, Happy Easter To you !!!
