Merry Christmas everyone, enjoy your Holidays with friends and family!
Alone I lean under the wispy shade of an aged tree,
Scornfully I raise to parted lips a cup of warm wine,
Longingly I cast an empty vessel aside those exposed roots,
And leave behind forgotten memories and forsaken dreams.

Merry Christmas - still 5 hours left where I am.

Had a nice, quiet Christmas overall. Saw my family and my wife's family, and traded presents with everyone.

My Christmas present from my parents! Chuffed with it! Bought it on their behalf at £60. The cheapest price on amazon now is £135!

There are articles written by names like Michael Loewe, Hans Bielenstein and Patricia Ebrey on topics stretching from political history like the one Wayward Author posted on the fall of the Han to Confucian, legalism and Taoism in the Later Han, Han law and Han foreign relations!

It might have been published in 1986 but beyond Rafe’s work there’s not been many developments in the study of this period!

I’m so excited to dig in to it!

Happy holidays, everyone! I just got back home from a little voyage out of province, but fortunately I'm not late as the holidays continue to rage on. ;) I hope everyone had a relaxing/exciting/enjoyable/peaceful time, as required.
