Group hug?

I'm going on my annul pilgrimage to the Lake District for my normal Christian summer camp. As ever I'll have limited internet access and time for the next few weeks so I'll speak to you all upon my return!

Hi everybody! It's been a very, very long time since my last post and I just wanted to say hi to any of the folks I chatted with back in the day, as well as a quick hello to all the new folks I've yet to meet! Since my last visit I've gotten married. switched jobs, moved multiple times, and many many other life changes. I'd love to catch up with everybody, and I look forward to discussing our mutual interests together on SoSZ again!

Hello everyone, I think it has been more than a decade since I was active in this forum. Lost for words to describe what transpired across the years but a good summary would be, I've come around in a big circle in life, chasing my career, dreams, traveling, and am glad to be back again.

Particularly happy to see SoSZ still alive all these years, familiar faces, humble facade, despite the rapid technological advancement and different forms of communication media.

Time to refresh my rusty memories on Chinese history and rekindle the passion! As I'm connected with some of the other old members of this forum, I'd see what I can do to bring them back too..haha.. :D

I think in the Book of Jin, such a co-occurrence of two rare sightings would be interpreted as some Omen.

I fear for the world now.

But welcome back nonetheless!
