Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

i've been neglecting this blog because I have so many others to write and administer - I am beginning to feel I haven't got a life!

But I think this blog is reserved from the other part of my working life - this is where I meander and just write about whatever I feel like. I am a bit perturbed by the fact that over bolog now displays advertisements on my blog. It never used to. I shall have to do something bout it.

I have now bought a flat here in Coventry - I think it means I am settling down and putting down roots. Some people are surprised that I chose Coventry but for now, Coventry suits me. It is easy for me to go to London or elsewhere and Birmingham international is just 15 mins train ride away. My new flat has a very small balcony on which I hope to start gardening again. I think the last few years I've been focusing much on disability issues - which is important but it meant that I was getting too focused and I need something different - something to get me away from the computer screen and dare I say it, make some local friends.

Also found http://twitter.com/Coventry_Guide which gives some idea of whats on in Coventry.
