Hello and welcome back to "ACK THERE'S A BUTTERFLY ON MY NOSE!"

I've been receiving anonymous complaints from Pouya that my journal has been getting extremely lame over the past couple weeks.

Ergo, I have begun a journal-renovation project, AKA PROJECT BUTTERFLY.

Project Butterfly: making the journal a better place.

this post has a lack of pre-china unificatiom emperor poetry
but dont worry! i fix it up

"Though the Tortoise Lives Long"

Though the tortoise blessed with magic powers lives long,
Its days have their allotted span;

Though winged serpents ride high on the mist,
They turn to dust and ashes at the last;

An old war-horse may be stabled,
Yet still it longs to gallop a thousand li;

And a noble-hearted man though advanced in years
Never abandons his proud aspirations.

Man's span of life, whether long or short,
Depends not on Heaven alone;

One who eats well and keeps cheerful
Can live to a great old age.

And so, with joy in my heart,
I hum this song.
