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 rang home to wish mum and dad a Happy New Year and could not believe it that they are actually working today! They dont stop working except on Chinese New year!

All through the Christmas holidays I felt a little lost because all around me people were celebrating with their families and although daughter Naomi was with me and that was great, I felt a bit of an exile from my friends. And I felt bad for not providing that for the kids - when we had the nuclear family christmas with going to mass, Christmas dinners, advent calendars etc. I felt that my actions had caused me to be adrift away from loved ones and friends. However, this is self indulgent and my New year's resolution is to be positive, eat more greens, go do more exercise and to make lists and have set work priorities.
