My nest is empty, so I talk to myself.
Thainamu, how's it going? I hope all is well. I read the following quote from a book written by James Moffatt and thought of you:"Transliteration is not translation; nor is paraphrase. The latter tends to looseness and weakness, while an absolutely literal version is often the most inaccurate, as it is sometimes the most hideous thing in the world. To be crabbed is the temptation of the one; to be diluted, of the other. If I have in any degree attained the ideal of my conception, it has been by steering between these two shoals." This seems to outline quite well the dilemmas of translation.Just thought I'd share that with you. Love your photos, by the way. Chris
