Thomas Ovenden - 'I met this cobbler sitting in the doorway of his house and workshop in a mountain village in Mexico. He told me he’d made shoes by hand this way, the old way, for the whole village in this very house for 45 years, he seemed happy to carry on for another 45. Some things never change but sometimes the rediscovery of traditions long forgotten make us realise the cost of our forgetfulness.'

Some things never change but sometimes the rediscovery of traditions long forgotten make us realise the cost of our forgetfulness.'

Thomas Ovenden – ‘Wnes i gyfarfod y teiliwr ‘ma’n eistedd yn nrws ei gartref a’i weithdy mewn pentref mynyddig ym Mecsico. Mi ddwedodd wrtha i ei fod o wedi bod yn gwneud esgidiau â llaw fel hyn, yn yr hen ffordd, i bawb yn y pentref, o’r tŷ hwnnw, ers 45 mlynedd, ac roedd o’n edrych fel pe byddai’n hapus gwneud hynny am 45 mlynedd arall. Mae rhai pethau nad ydyn nhw byth yn newid ond weithiau drwy ailddarganfod traddodiadau yr ydyn ni wedi hen anghofio amdanyn nhw rydan ni sylweddoli beth yw cost yr anghofio hwnnw.’ (Cyfieithiad)
