Reading room

Sorry for the slowness, I want to put stuff up all the time, but I’ve been pretty swamped with reading. I’m studying Chinese literature and there’s a wonderfully humungous amount. It’s amazing! I’d like to share some of the work I’ve been looking at soon.

I like to think of my reading swamp as being similar to the beautiful abode of the man playing a qin in this card – bought at SOAS, featuring decoration on a Qing dynasty (18th century) jar with underglaze blue decoration.

Like so:







I like how even in my dream

study the place is a mess.

Visible floorspace? What?

Anyhow, I’ll try and put up

some more stuff soon. Have a

good week!

    Fantastic! Lovely foliage too. I think I need some Bea-skills to illustrate my clunky Zi Bu Yu translations – I have no inspiration at all…
    Of course I should also be reading too, rather than thinking about this kind of thing.

    I like that in the idealised version you have failed to give yourself a little bridge, suggesting that there is no escape. And yes, I distinctly remember the reality of the last image….
