The geopolitical and economic effects of the fall of the Soviet Union cannot, of course, be overstated. But for collectors like myself, the greatest of them was the explosion onto the market of phoenix eggs. via Pocket

The history of each story, then, should read almost like a weather report: Hot today, cool tomorrow. This afternoon, burn down the house. Tomorrow, pour cold critical water upon the simmering coals. Time enough to think and cut and rewrite tomorrow. But today—explode—fly apart—disintegrate! The other six or seven drafts are going to be pure torture. So why not enjoy the first draft, in the hope that you joy will seek and find others in the world who, reading your story, will catch fire, too?

epworks:

The second out of my four thesis images. This one I actually posted up prematurely, if you go back far enough you’ll probably find it.
For the description of my thesis, return to  Gui Xian 
Zhu Qiao, the Red Bird, represents south and its element is (obviously) fire. Interesting enough, the phoenix is the symbol of the Empress and her side of the family. This was the first Ely that I completed, and it was also the one with the least amount of edits along the way. And to be honest, this one was the easiest for me to create. Its a fire bird whose color is red, half of the image was pretty much in the bag :p
Other Images:
North- Gui Xian
East- Qinglong
West- Baihu
