Read MoreI read a great idiom this morning, "dim Gobaith Caneri," which is Welsh and in English is "no hope like a canary." This came from a bio of the judge in the AmeriCymru short story competition, poet Mike Jenkins, and was the title of an exhibit he did with painter Gustaf Payne, photo is below. I read this as "no hope like a canary," like a crazy, fragile, even illusory hope that you'd just shrug your shoulders over and leap before looking anyway, without regard to consequences and on the chance it would be ok. Ceri, read it as "no hope, like a canary," as in no hope at all. Another...

The volume Flowers of Wales published this week by Y Lolfa is the life work of botanist Goronwy Wynne, a leading Biology lecturer and life long member of the British Botanic Society. The book, which spans almost six hundred pages, covers all known Welsh plants in an ambitious hardback volume. ‘This volume is the fruit of a lifetime’s labour’ said Professor Deri Tomos, ‘As well as being a prestigious catalouger, Goronwy Wynne is one who is passionate about what is behind the romantic facade of nature.’...
Read MoreA new novel published this week has brought to light a forgotten atrocity perpetrated against the Welsh by English Roundhead soldiers, where over a hundredWelsh women were brutally murdered. Dark Territory by American-born and Wales-based author Jerry Hunter is set in the seventeenth century around the period of the English Civil War, and highlights the fact that the violence associated with religious extremism is not a new issue. ‘It is relatively well known that during his bloody military campaign in Ireland Oliver Cromwell approved the wholesale slaughter of civilians in Wexford and...
