Stories on radio this week.


I have listened to the radio this week and they were speaking how storks are returning from the south unaware of a cruel weather.
They mentioned one male stork, who exhausted after a flight from Africa, was desperately trying to find something in fields, full of snow and ice. But in vain.
After few days it wasn´t able to move, so it was easily caught by ornitologists, but the other day died from exhaustion.
How sad, isn´t it? Thousands of kilometres the bird flied in the hot, winds, rains and storms to see the home with the birth nest…As storks usually return to the same nest.

…to land down among other birds, to mingle with them for a while on a banks from the youth.

But coming back in a wrong time.

There was another story on the radio today. How Kundera, a famous writer and our native, rejected to return home after 1989. Not just that. He had no interest to visit theatres in Prague, playing his plays after 1989. He has constantly rejected Czech and Slovak translators to translate his novels and theoretical works, which he wrote in French. He said, only he would be able to translate it correctly, but he had no time.
Now he is writing a new novel in his eighties.
Interestingly, he reminds me an opposite of the stork. Who survived, thanks to his foresight, that fields are just not ready, yet.

Hi Kat

Sometimes hearing stories on the radio gives a more vivid picture than watching on TV ...

Yes, I watch TV very very rarely, maybe twice in a month. As during the day I do a lot with computer and then have to study regularly, I keep my eyes resting and listen to radio. There are more things nowadays to learn, then from TV.
