    Hi Cathy, I am glad Bob B. gave us your link. it was fun reading your post. Your life sounds like mine, in the last chapters and in a hurry to finish my first manuscript. Time is fleeting, and goes even faster each day. it seems like an hour is shorter than sixty minutes, don’t you think? I do art curating for a museum, and I paint too. Along with writing, it is a full schedule.

    I‘m very happy to hear that. when I get ready I will send to you. Now I send to you one as follows

    Magnolia valley
    By Wang Wei

    In autumn the summit of mountain
    Blocks exactly half the setting sun.
    Birds chase their lovers ahead so fast,
    And soon disappear into the distant forest.
    The glow of sunset shines a golden light
    Upon the woodland greens- it’s a delight..
    The air is clear, the forest mist is lifting,
    And no night fog’s on the mountain, drifting.

    I like Wang wei’s poetry. that caused me have a thought to intrduce his poem to western countries. Eventhough I know many translator have did it before.

    Send off my cousin at Ling Yun pool
    By Wang Wei
    Translated by David Du
    Lifting a golden glass to drink wine slowly
    To the elegant song I listen, tactfully.
    The painted boat moves quietly
    And the beautiful dance turns round fully.
    I sigh for the wagtail separate by the river,
    They don’t follow the swans goose flying over the water.

    (Wagtail: in Chinese idiom expresses brother)
