I'm very impressed by the adaptation of my lessons. It's fantastic! I
can tell you actually went through and made all those necessary cross-
references. Great job!
Publish the lessons? That'd be pretty cool, if someone else feels

and they go in this order:
1. Get Marraskuu's permission.
2. Don't charge the copies so that you make more than $4 US dollars
in profit for each one without my approval.
3. Once 50 copies have been sold (Hah!), I'd like to receive a
portion of the profit if there is any, if Marraskuu approves.
4. Any other issues that arise from selling copies of the book are
the responsibility of the seller, not me.
If someone decides to go ahead with the publishing, tell me
beforehand because I want to make this agreement more formal.

a Toki Ponan would worry about such things; it's overly complicated.
According to Toki Pona philosophy, a day is simply a day; all past
days and all future days are of almost no importance. It's just that
