Refuge

Marto 30, 2011

Here is a PDF (sadly, in the case of the front cover, black-and-white) of the program from Refuge: A classical concert to raise awareness about refugees from Burma, presented last Sunday (March 27, 2011) at Seattle First Baptist Church.

See there, high in the sky (Paula’s Bridge)

Marto 13, 2011

In 2000, Albrecht Kronenberger wrote a hymn on the rainbow (Gen. 9:13), Jen la arko ĉiela, set to the tune of “Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz. In 2002, I translated it into English as See there, high in the sky. And in 2003, my fiancée Paula Johnson (now Ross) wrote an additional text to be sung to the tune’s bridge (this portion of the tune was not utilized in the Esperanto original). It goes like this:

When I must walk through darkest night
I always find you send a light
to guide me,
and even though I sometimes fall
and often do not heed your call
you always find me….

If I did an Esperanto translation of it, I have not located it. Paula’s English text just resurfaced after 7+ years somewhere in the bowels of our storage unit.
