Here’s my new Now page, an overview of what I’m up to Now. I’ll try to keep this updated every few weeks or at least once a month. You can read about the Now page at this blog post.
May 21, 2020.
Books I’m reading or have recently read:
The Price of Paradise by Susana Lopez Rubio
The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Big Rock Candy Mountain by Wallace Stegner
The Feast of the Goat by Mario Vargas Llosa
Music I’m listening too or have enjoyed lately:
I love Afropop, so I usually download and listen to Afropop Worldwide‘s weekly audio program (it’s free to download–just set up a free Soundcloud account)
Specific titles lately: Grand Canyon Suite Ferde Grofe
Gymnopedies by Erik Satie (love the paintings of Paris that accompany this on Youtube)
Piano Concerto in A Minor by Robert Schumann as performed by the incredibly soulful Martha Argerich in a Youtube video.
various titles by George Gershwin
Of course, anything by the Beatles gets my blood rushing, as does Latino Pop, like Salsa, Merengue, Reggaethon, etc.
TV series or movies: binge watching “The Sopranos”. Almost finished with season 3.
Anything else new going on?:
Yes, I’ve taken up meditation recently.
What I’m looking forward to:
School reopening on June 2 after the covid-19 lockdown in Vientiane has been relaxed.
