Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, and you, you are a thousand miles away, 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.

I read the whole thing. Interesting at first, then it grows winded in theory for me.

It indicates that it's copyrighted:
I don't think one can really copyright a story from the 1700s?!
