homeward bound





A good result in troubled times.

The Lines (base to top)

Wounded pheasant, starving prince
Pheasant with a bad thigh bone
Pheasant shot on southern hunt
Wounded pheasant’s heart is pierced
Mad Jizi gets his pheasant
Soaring up, plummeting down


Earth over fire. Passion quenched. But not permanently.

Feigning madness, the last prime minister of Shang, Jizi, got himself released from prison. After difficult travel he established a new base in Korea.

Tough odds, but you can make it.
