Despite how it took me several days to read this, I was delighted to read it all. Truly wonderful :)

Completely agree with the above. This made for a great read whilst on the train to work. Since the train journey is relatively short it also took a few days to finish this. If you could post something like this once a week it would be great Dong thanks

Sorry Elitemsh, currently reading a work on Sima and officer case, depending on said officer can take longer then a week.

:lol:

I think Elitemsh was joking. No-one expects you to be producing something that long every week.

However if one isn't done by Monday, I will return. Is that understood?!

Definitely joking. Of course the above must have taken a lot of research so i know it’s absurd for once a week. I think maybe Dong was playing along.

That's alright, so was I :lol:. The last line of my post, written in small print was meant to make that clear! :)

Thank you for the wonderful read Dong Zhou!
A bit late, but I also want to say that there is no need to shorten your analyses at all. I really hope there will be more to come =)

Dong Zhou, I would recommend you pass what you've written along to J. Michael Farmer. He's the editor of the Early Medieval China Journal, and may have some ideas about getting what you've written in an official channel.

You can contact him through the journal's website.

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.

Thank you. Been having a think but I'm uncertain, partly I don't know what the journal looks for and I imagine Farmer gets a lot of such applications including from more professional figures, you may know more then me on what they are looking for though
