Mary Tang has graciously translated several of my poems and provided recordings of them in Cantonese. I cannot tell you how touched and pleased I am to see and hear her versions of my work. Thank you, Mary!

  1. That does it; I’m learning Cantonese. I tried once, unfulfilled by Mandarin’s hard angles, but the extra tones intimidated me. I loved the richer textures of it though and the softness — not unlike water; in fact, the sound of that word in Cantonese was always my favorite. Thanks for posting, RO. Mary is a treasure!
