Childhood dream: Anagalisgi

As a child he noticed that he could say and think certain expressions much more rapidly in the Cherokee language than in English. He called these Cherokee expressions "Lightning bolts". He also noticed that there were certain expressions that could be pronounced and thought much faster in English than in Cherokee. When he was forced to study Spanish in elementary school he found "lightning bolts" there as well.

A question came to his mind: Why not collect the lightning bolts from various world languages, put them all together as a newly created world language?

He inquired among his friends, did research in libraries and concluded that no one had ever done that. He decided to do that work himself.

Feeling that he was too uneducated to complete such a grandiose task, he decided to study languages, grammar etc., and maybe one day he would be able to do it.

He named his language "anagalisgi," which is Cherokee for lightning.
