Like all of you I have been shocked and totally absorbed by the war (yes it is Mr Putin) in Ukraine over the past few weeks. I have work colleagues and friends there.
We have all seen too many dreadful images coming out of that beautiful and sophisticated country. I wanted to share something completely different. A music video called Vesna (which means Spring) that celebrates the beauty of the countryside, cities and people of Ukraine. It is by Dakha Brakha whose music is quite eclectic. This image of people caught up in the powerful rhythmic music always makes me smile and feel good. I hope it does the same for you.
Slava Ukraini !!
Thank you for this beautifully organized page, which makes it possible to revisit aspects of PLF’s life in which we have an abiding interest. I imagine that a young Fermor would be in the Ukraine right now, leading a band of patriots. How reading his work and wondering about his life has enriched my own.
Thank you Tom…I love their music and …I am mad for those girl’s hats …!
Full on Cossack style I guess Angelica!
