For the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Humber Bridge, a lyrical and hopeful ode quite unlike the Larkin of This Be The Verse and Aubade, read by Sir Tom Courtenay.

(The short film doesn't do Hull justice, according to two colleagues who worked there for several years and were pleasantly surprised and moved by the tribute from a personage familiar until yesterday to them only as a statue and the name of a building, but the words more than suffice.)

Was cleaning out computer when found an mp3 of a wonderful bluegrass song, Song of the Traveling Daughter, by Abigail Washburn. The lyrics given on her music website are not exactly the same as the recording I have - though there is a highly entertaining Youtube fanvid using the mp3:


Song of the Traveling Daughter (游女吟) - lyrics as heard, my literal translationCollapse )

She was apparently inspired by Meng Jiao's classic poem Song of the Traveling Son (poem with English translation).

More Chinese bluegrass!

Jumping on the bandwagon, 50 female characters I like, in alphabetical orderCollapse )

Getting to 100 might requiring putting the ol' memory on a treadmill rather than a leisurely jog, but we shall see.
