Oh dear, you folks are gearing up for literature stuff so quickly? :lol:

Here is one for all of us who have been through some trials of working life since we abandoned our geeky school days.

人生无根蒂,飘如陌上尘。
分散逐风转,此已非常身。
落地为兄弟,何必骨肉亲!
得欢当作乐,斗酒聚比邻。
盛年不重来,一日难再晨。
及时当勉励,岁月不待人。

Blame Mega Zarak. He's the one who's throwing in gratuitous poetry in an "I'm back" thread.

To all who are seeking respite from the trials of work:

归去来兮,田园将芜胡不归!既目以心为形役,奚惆怅而独悲?

已矣乎!寓形宇内复几时!曷不委心任去留?胡为乎遑遑欲何之?

I'm glad James has kept this "garden" going for all these years for those of us who need to pop in and take a break.

Yeah, it is amazing that this forum is maintained after all these years! Really appreciate James for keeping the spirit of sanguo alive for new readers. 2008 was the last time we spent a great deal of efforts translating / watching sanguo drama. Now, I wonder if I can still remember the name of Xiahou Yuan's son....

I’m back! I’ve had an awesome two weeks, there seems to have been a ton of activity in my absence – lots for me to catch up on.

Welcome back Equinox and Starscream – I love seeing old faces return!

I also wanted to say a special welcome back to Mega Zarak! I’m not sure if we were ever active at the same time but I’ve come across many of your posts over the years! It’s exciting to see such a well-read scholar to the board after such a long absence!

:D :D :D
