Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, there are still two cups at my table.

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Chinese Swords

This came to my attention via the Kung Fu Tea blog.

Li Zhujun is a Chinese swordsmith who has deeply researched old steel forging techniques in order to make simply exquisite swords.

Here is a photo essay at Xinhuanet depicting his work. The pictures of the swords are spectacular.
