Speak up, Speak Out!

Dachjo RUTAN's picture

I am as guilty as anyone I'm about to refer to, but it should be said. Esperantists, especially new Esperantists or 'komencantoj' usually have a problem in common with their older samideanoj who are isolated or without experience. We tend not to talk out loud in the language we chose to learn. I am equally guilty. At the recent gathering of New Jersey Esperantists I held back, partly because I'm shy by nature, and partly because I've rarely (maybe once) spoken to an Esperantist face to face.

Ho ve, la jaroj, la jaroj…

Mi eklernis Esperanton antaŭ multaj jaroj, ĉirkaŭ 1982 P.K. Mi unue lernis pri ĝi dum lerneja esplor-projekto pri ‘Mondaj Lingvoj’ Mi trovis ekzempleron de ‘Teach Yourself en mia biblioteko kaj provis lerni la lingvon. Poste, mi kontaktis ELNA kaj aĉetis mian propran ekempleron de TY. Ne facilas lerni lingvon sole, kaj eĉ kiam mia koramikino (nun mia edzino) provis lerni ĝin kun mi, ni ne tute sukcesis.

Incremental Activism

Dachjo RUTAN's picture

Today I was informed that the book donation I made to my local branch of the Sussex County library was now available to the public. The book I donated was 'Peter Jameson's Secret Language' by Sylvan Zaft. We shall see if any of the youth of my area get drawn in by this.

The other front I'm attacking is a public display of Esperanto materials to be featured in the lobbies of three of my area branches. The display begins in the southern part of my county and will move northwards. The possibility exists for the display to cross county lines, but I'll tackle that later.
