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).

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."
