PDP #8 - Bonus - "A Story of Divination" by Lafcadio Hearn
This week I chose to read an excerpt from Lafcadio Hearn's, "In Ghostly Japan" in part due to listener Alexander's request for more Hearn in his comment he left in the blog last week. This story is told by Hearn about an acquaintance of his who in turn told him a story about divination. It mentions the Meiji, a time in Japan where they turned sharply to adopt the trappings of Western Civilization. This story had several Japanese terms which I was not familiar with. I have to thank my friend Jean for help in pronunciations though I'm sure I still butchered a few words. Jean has a store which carries japanese items like her Got Sake? t-shirt if you are in a shopping mood.
On a final note, I was able to record this story in a quieter setting so those who noticed a bit of a humming in past recordings will be happy to note this one is quieter. However, I did not remember to bump up the bit rate so it is still at last week's level. I'll bump it up for next week.
Enjoy the tale and be sure to check in on Monday when I continue reading "The Master of the World" by Jules Verne.
