The life of an Absolute Monarch is supposed to be easy. Flogging peasants, introducing new and interesting taxes, gargantuan banquets awash with alcohol, etc.

Not so, I’m afraid. Just so many projects on the go at present, one of which so overloaded me with adrenaline yesterday that it cleansed the system of decades of cholesterol.

Now, some bloggers overload their sites with cat (Felis silvestris catus) photos when experiencing a writing hiatus, but I won’t take that low path and shall provide some musical culture instead. However, before doing so, I would like to recommend Yaxue Cao’s new China Human Rights site Original content of the first order and it deserves to be supported.

Wayfaring Stranger. Jack White. The killer first track from Cold Mountain. And the rest of the CD is also worth a listen.

With Mali’s recent elections and its attempt to reconstruct itself, the infectious sound of Amadou & Marian. Mon Amour, Ma Cherie. Live.

One of the enchanting female voices of Mali, Rokia Traori.

Back to work and will be blogging again in earnest in two weeks.
Take Care.

    Dear King (or is it Dear Tubby),

    I will always love you!

    Like the rest of your admiring subjects I wait on bent knees for each all too brief prognostication. My life seems empty until I get the word from your esteemed fingers (on the keyboard that is), on those rare occasions that you bless us unworthy ones with your insights and wisdom.

    Please oblige us wretched and sad ones, out here in the kingdom, with some more of your revered words.

    Your Obedient Servant forever and ever…

    Cheers from Gordon
