Portraits (National Portrait Gallery)


Leave me, O Love, which reachest but to dust; 
And thou, my mind, aspire to higher things; 
Grow rich in that which never taketh rust; 
Whatever fades but fading pleasure brings. 
Draw in thy beams and humble all thy might 
To that sweet yoke where lasting freedoms be; 
Which breaks the clouds and opens forth the light, 
That both doth shine and give us sight to see. 
O take fast hold; let that light be thy guide 
In this small course which birth draws out to death, 
And think how evil becometh him to slide, 
Who seeketh heav'n, and comes of heav'nly breath. 
Then farewell, world; thy uttermost I see: 
Eternal Love, maintain thy life in me. 

Sir Philip Sidney

Weymouth Harbour works delayed for holiday season, BBC News

"Weymouth and Portland Borough Council has said the section of wall, made of sheet steel in 1960, is badly corroded and at risk of collapse with "localised loss of limestone fill material". The work will involve building a line of new sheet steel piles, driven into the harbour bed".







Greece, Economy. Economic Advisers; Populism


From eKathimerini - "Greece was let down by high-profile advisers" - Comment/Opinion, Barry Eichengreen

"Was it all worth it for Greece? “I think both for economic and political reasons it will ultimately prove worthwhile that Greece stayed the course,” he says. “The arguments for abandoning the euro and devaluating the reintroduced drachma constitute interesting hypotheticals but the reality is that it doesn’t run in reverse. A European Union member in good standing has economic value – as the UK is learning, the hard way.”

Enver Hoxha on Lord Byron, 1975


"I like Byron...
He sincerely loved my people,
Sang their praises
With pure feeling,
Sang of their manliness
And valour.
We love our friends
And welcome them,
For our enemies...
These bullets".


Byron in Delphi

Led us to the spot
At the Temple of Athena Pronaia.
It took a while to find it,
The fallen column
With the faint inscriptions:
BYR.., HOBHOUSE.
Perhaps we would be
The last to see them,
Where Philhellenes
Had carved their names
Near the navel of the world.
He poured on water
From the Castalian Spring,
Used a mirror
To make more distinct
Their Delphic markings.
Our secret mission, in search of scratches.
BYR...BY....B....a B, maybe?

It's great to see Lord Byron's verses on the lips of singers in some unexpected settings and locations all around the world (even if his words have been changed!)


As Adrian Mitchell once wrote in Byron is one of the dancers:

"His poems - they were glad with jokes, trumpets, arguments and
                                                                          flying crockery
                                                  Rejoice
He shook hearts with his lust and nonsense, he was independent as
                                                                             the weather
                                                  Rejoice
Alive, alive, as alive as us, he used his life and let life use him
He loved freedom, he loved Greece, and yes of course, he died for
                                                                  the freedom of Greece
                                                   Rejoice.....

and yes, I hear the music which drives those feet
and feel the arm of Byron round my shoulder
or maybe it is round your shoulder
Oh I feel your arm around my shoulder
and yes, I know the line of dancers
across the cracked-up earth of Greece
stretches from sea to sea...
dance out the dance which must be danced
for the freedom of Greece
for the freedom of Greece..."


Adrian Mitchell.

Kiama's Blowhole: Charmian Clift, Kiama, NSW, Australia



Charmian Clift was born in Kiama, New South Wales, on 30 August 1923. She attended primary school in Kiama.


From Kiama to Mosman, via London and Hydra.


"Kiama's Blowhole", a poem written by Charmian Clift at the age of eight.

THE FOND HEART WANDERED: CHARMIAN CLIFT AND KIAMA


When we lived in Sydney, we would often drive to Kiama and to Jervis Bay. I wish I'd read more of Charmian Clift in those years. I've just finished her gripping and powerful novel,  Walk to the Paradise Gardens (London, 1960), a novel well ahead of its time, full of both light and darkness.

It's strange that she allowed the publishers to include these words in the biographical note on the rear of the dust jacket :

"She has no hobbies except food and wine and talk and sitting in the sun, or, better, lying in it, and swimming as much as possible."





We'd often go to Mosman to visit friends. That is where she lived (at 112, Raglan Street) after the family returned from the Greek island of Hydra. It is where she took her own life on the night of July 8th, 1969.

It's hard to believe that July 2019 will mark the fiftieth anniversary of her tragic and untimely death.

Edwin Muir: A Scottish Poet in Prague



From Radio Praha, David Vaughan

https://www.radio.cz/en/section/books/edwin-muir-a-scottish-poet-in-prague


The Cloud 

One late spring in Bohemia,
Driving to the Writer’s House, we lost our way
In a maze of little winding roads that led
To nothing but themselves,
Weaving a rustic web for thoughtless travellers.
Only a chequer-board of little fields,
Crumpled and dry, neat squares of powdered dust.
At a sudden turn we saw
A young man harrowing, hidden in dust; he seemed
A prisoner walking in a moving cloud
Made by himself for his own purposes;
And there he grew and was as if exalted
To more than man, yet not, not glorified:
A pillar of dust moving in dust; no more.
The bushes by the roadside were encrusted
With a hard sheath of dust.
We looked and wondered; the dry cloud moved on
With its interior image.
Presently we found
A road that brought us to the Writer’s House,
And there a preacher from Urania
(Sad land where hope each day is killed by hope)
Praised the good dust, man’s ultimate salvation,
And cried that God was dead. As we drove back
Late to the city, still our minds were teased
By the brown barren fields, the harrowing,
The figure walking in its cloud, the message
From Urania. This was before the change;
And in our memory cloud and message fused,
Image and thought condensed to a giant form
That walked the earth clothed in its earthly cloud,
Dust made sublime in dust. And yet it seemed unreal
And lonely as things not in their proper place.
And thinking of the man
Hid in his cloud we longed for light to break
And show that his face was the face once broken in Eden,
Beloved, worth-without-end lamented face;
And not a blindfold mask on a pillar of dust.

Edwin Muir.


A personal postscript, 1987 (before the Velvet Revolution):


November Cloud
For Peter Butter, On the Occasion of the Edwin Muir Centenary Lecture, Prague


On the way to the Writers' House -
Bohemia in mid-November -
Professor Butter, Muir's biographer,
Sat beside me in the car.
We talked of the poem called The Cloud,
Of what Muir meant, of what he'd seen.
The Dobříš Mansion had hardly altered
Since its use had changed in '45
From residence of Reich's Protector
To haven for the harassed writer,
Reserved these days for the Party-favoured -
Those writers blessed by the Union-Reich,
The loyal-elect, the Committee-chosen,
With three books to their names at least,
Sound author's of the State's persuasion,
Rewarded by a stay at Dobříš
With stipend and a stately room;
The privilege of elegance
For the price of a cribbed, diminished soul.
Today the seminar's behind closed doors;
Young eager writers have been assembled,
They're being shown the prizes and rewards
To be won for staying in line and silent.
For the mansion of Comfort is not twenty miles
From the cancerous mines of uranium towns,
Where dissenting scribblers were sent for correction,
Příbram, seat of the Dissidents' Mines.
But we were given the royal treatment,
In Dobříš' fine reception halls.
We were glad to see the guest-book there,
The first they'd had, from forty-five.
Aragon and Eluard, their signatures were all too clear: -
Near theirs we found it, Edwin Muir's!
In '46 and '47, Edwin Muir and Willa too.

Who here remembers Edwin Muir?
Perhaps a man in a cloud of dust?
We presented two books to the lady custodian,
They were gladly accepted by the Keeper of Keys:-
Muir's poems, prose of life in Prague.
I wonder what they'll make of them,
The comrades in their graceful suites,
Looking for honest inspiration,
Unguilded themes which suit the times,
But which won't offend the Party chiefs?
Let them read The Good Town and The Cloud.
As they stroll French Garden or English Park,
Casting backward looks and sideways glances,
As they search for the wire in the antique vase,
Rococo mirror, baroque writing-desk.

Let them remember, as they shred each draft:
The labyrinth begins right here.

που 'χω δυο λόγια να σου πω

Ξημέρωσε η ανατολή
μπονάτσα να σκορπίσει
και τη μπρατσέρα που `ρχεται
να την καλωσορίσει

Πάει ο Προύζος να ορτσάρει
κι ο καιρός δε σιουντάρει

Πάψε βοριά μου να φυσάς
τα κύματα να αφρίζεις
και τη μπρατσέρα που `ρχεται
να μην την εμποδίζεις

Πάει ο Προύζος να φουντάρει
και του σπάζει το κοντάρι

Ethiopian Jazz: Hailu Mergia: the Ethiopian jazz legend



From BBC World Service - seven minute interview:

"Do you ever wonder who’s in the front of your cab? Because it might just be someone with a story that would knock you out. Like that of Ethiopian Hailu Mergia who drove a cab in Washington DC for nearly 20 years".


From The Guardian (1st March, 2018)

"He fled his native country with his group, the Walias Band, in 1981 and now drives a cab in Washington DC, in which he also composes".


Swinging Addis, Courtney Pine, BBC World Service

"In the 1960s and early '70s, unknown to most of the outside world, Addis Ababa's nightlife was electrified by a blend of traditional folk music, jazz, swing, rhythm and blues. Clubs were full, dance floors packed with young people moved by the music of a new generation of Ethiopian pop stars who were inspired by Elvis and James Brown, but gave their sound a unique twist. "There is Swinging Addis just like there is Swinging London, bell-bottom trousers, mini skirts..." In Addis Ababa, Courtney Pine meets some of the veterans of the Swinging Addis golden age of Ethiopian jazz, including Mahmoud Ahmed and Alemayehu Eshete - the 'Ethiopian Elvis'. These Ethiopian heroes, now in their 70s, are like the Buena Vista Social Club stars of their country. Courtney speaks to the legendary Ethiopian music producer Amha Eshete, while his guide on his musical journey of discovery is Francis Falceto, the French music producer who 'rediscovered' these artists and brought their music to the West, and has now compiled 30 albums in the Ethiopiques series. Courtney finds Addis Ababa is still swinging, and meets one of the new generation of Ethiopian jazz musicians who are picking up the beat, the young pianist Samuel Yirga, to jam Ethiopian style. The story began in 1896, following Ethiopia's victory against the invading Italians at the Battle of Adwa, when the Russian tsar Nicolas II sent Emperor Menelik 40 brass instruments. Brass became the imperial music – and that influence planted a seed. Then, on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 1924, the prince who would become Emperor Haile Selassie, met a marching band of young Armenians orphaned in the recent Ottoman massacres. He shipped the 'Arba Lijoch' ('Forty Kids') back to Addis Ababa and installed them as the imperial band. The emperor's new big band ensembles proved to be incubators for the stars of a new sound craved by a young generation demanding musical – as well as social and political - change. In 1969, a 26-year-old music producer called Amha Eshete defied an imperial decree giving the state a monopoly over the reproduction of music to release Ethiopia's first-ever independent record with Alemayehu Eshete. When the pair played it on a loudspeaker from Amha's music shop, the young people dancing in the street stopped the traffic. The rest was history"  BBC Sounds..

Reflecting on China (Nina).



Nina's photographs, Beijing reflections, yesterday:

Neil Harris, RIP




A truly kind and wonderful man, an accomplished song-writer and musician, who always had time for everybody. There must have been around 150 people gathered to say farewell to Neil in Weymouth, and afterwards at Tom Browns pub in Dorchester.

This is the first song that was played at the celebration of Neil's life.

The second piece of music.



(Name of photographer not known to me)

Chris Kipper Roberts (above) was one of the many good friends, singers and great musicians who performed at Tom Browns, Neil's local pub. Neil will not be forgotten. A moving celebration and a fitting tribute for a great Dorchester man.

Tom Brown gave an outstanding and deeply-felt performance.

I was particularly moved by the blues sung by Hanni (Hanni and Roye, from Million Dollar Bash). Kipper invited me to join in for a short wailing solo on my blues-harp.

Neil loved the blues, as well as gospel blues.

With thanks to Joss and Sandra for letting me know. I hadn't heard the sad and shocking news. My sincere condolences. The last time I saw Neil was at Tom Browns pub on 14th September, on the occasion of his 70th birthday bash.

Dedicated to Neil, and in memory of a much-missed, free-thinking and admirable man:

Blind Willie Johnson- Let Your Light Shine On Me

Since I've Laid My Burden Down,  Mississippi John Hurt

Mississippi Fred McDowell - When I Lay My Burden Down

Mac Rebennack - Lay My Burden Down (featuring Mavis Staples & The Dirty Dozen Brass Band)


My own song, When you get to thirty-one

I started to sing this song (written when I was 31, working far away from home in Addis Ababa and Nairobi) - which I'd re-titled at the start of my own 71st year as "If you get to seventy-one", but I couldn't hear my little Taylor acoustic guitar properly (it sounded out of tune, or maybe it was the disconcerting feedback), so I gave up on this song. Kipper kindly lent me his superb guitar for "Midnight Special" and "Let your light shine on me" - both hopeful, uplifting songs.
