Penélope


Un paso adiante i outro atrás, Galiza,
i a tea dos teus sonos non se move. 
A espranza nos teus ollos se esperguiza.  
Aran os bois  e chove.
Un bruar de navíos moi lonxanos  
che estrolla o sono mol como unha uva.
Pro ti envólveste en sabas de mil anos,  
i en sonos volves a escoitar a chuva.
Traguerán os camiños algún día
a xente que levaron. Deus é o mesmo.
Suco vai, suco vén, Xesús María!,
e toda a cousa ha de pagar seu desmo.   
Desorballando os prados
coma sono,  
o Tempo vai de Parga a Pastoriza.
Vaise enterrando, suco a suco, o Outono.
Un paso adiante i outro atrás, Galiza!


Nimbos, Xosé María Díaz Castro, 1961 https://www.ogalego.eu/exercicios_de_lingua/lit/diazcastro/penelope.html

Open Goldberg Variations

The Open Goldberg Variations is a non-profit project that created a high quality studio recording and typeset score of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations, and placed them directly into the public domain. By releasing an entirely free version of the classical masterpiece, the project aims to change a common problem: in theory, classical music is a common property due to advanced age, yet it is hard to find quality recordings of it online due to copyrighted restrictions on the performances. Open Goldberg Variations cemented a free, quality version into the public domain, making the music available for everyone and everything, including schools, universities, musicians, private persons and even commercial productions.

The 1 April 1992 broadcast of National Public Radio’s Talk of the Nation revealed that Richard Nixon, in a surprise move, was running for President again. His new campaign slogan was, “I didn’t do anything wrong, and I won’t do it again.” Accompanying this announcement were audio clips of Nixon delivering his candidacy speech. Listeners responded viscerally to the announcement, flooding the show with calls expressing shock and outrage.
