Théodore Rousseau (1812-1867) A Tree in Fontainebleau

Händel's Ombra Mai Fu calls to mind scenes of pastoral peace and natural beauty.

While Westerners celebrate scenes of natural beauty through music, the Chinese reach such heights in the state of mind through poetry and painting, especially the landscape school of Tang poetry (山水诗) and Song Yuan paintings (山水画).

It is interesting to note that such poetic feelings in Western music are rarely found in Western paintings. The only thing that comes close to this tradition celebrating the silent beauty of nature in Western art was the short lived Barbizon School (巴比松画派) of painting that flourished in the SE suburbs of Paris in the 1830s-1870s.

Huge trees like the one in the picture above are still there around the little village of Fontainebleau (枫丹白露). Just Google Barbizon School (in images) and you can enjoy such artworks by Miller (米勒), Rousseau (卢梭), and Dupré (杜普雷).

Mujica’s Wisdom Sep 13

José Mujica, nick named Pepe Mujica, was President of Uruguay from 2010 to 2015. El Pepe drives a 1987 Volkswagen Beetle, lives in a farmhouse, flies economy and donates about 90% of his salary to social projects.

The Ideal Man according to Confucius? Sep 15

《理想人格,仁者不忧》

子曰:“仁者不忧,智者不惑,勇者不惧。”


Upon viewing the video of José Mujica of Uruguay, I have the impression that he might be an exemplification of the ideal man Confucius had been looking for, except he is far away, in Uruguay. Alas!

不 见 孔 子 答 颜 回, 但 闻 和 尚 想 私 会。
论 语 两 千 五 百 年, 帝 王 将 相 翻 成 倍。
世 上 果 然 有 君 子, 可 他 远 在 乌 拉 圭。
不 及 我 朝 一 县 长, 个 个 贵 过 你 José 。

D.S.2018.0913.b

There are many English versions of the Analects, but this would be my translation of the line above:

The Master says: "The virtuous is never worried, the wise is never mislead, and the brave is never afraid."

Fan Bingbing Apology: ‘I Feel Ashamed and Guilty for What I Did’
Henry Chu 4 hrs ago


https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/celebrity/fan-bingbing-apology-‘i-feel-ashamed-and-guilty-for-what-i-did’/ar-BBNS1hE?li=BBnbfcL

For translators, what we could benefit from this article would be the English translation of her apology. It would be a great piece for excercise to back-translate into Chinese without reading her original Chinese text, to see how close you can get.

To translation agencies: this is a valuable piece of test translation material that you guys can grab now for future use when trying to recruit freelance translators. To assess someone's ability in rendering contemporary Chinese as it is being used live, this piece would be more accurate than say, the Gettysburg speech!

唐僧: 悟空,怎么出来了两个月亮?
悟空: 师父,待俺老孙上天去看看真假。
八戒: 猴哥,等等我!(这猴头,去看嫦娥姐姐就是不带上我。)
唐僧: 悟能,你就不必跟去了,他去去就回。
八戒: 师父,大师兄要上九天,怎么说也得好几个时辰,说不定还会呆在那儿玩呢。
(话没讲完,悟空就回来了。)
唐僧: 悟空,你有什忘了跟我们交代吗?
悟空: 师父,我上去一看,原来是颗大珍珠,看来不是妖怪,摸了一摸还发热,会说话,所以没忍心要它性命。
唐僧: 阿弥陀佛!
八戒: 猴头你瞎说,根本就没到那儿。你再快上九天也得几个时辰。老猪就是不信。
悟空: 八戒,谁说我上九天了,我才上三天就碰上了,不信你自己去看。
