I recently moved back to the US after many years in China. In the process, China Post or USPS or both managed to lose three of the boxes of books I shipped. Among the missing, the Wilhelm Yi Jing. Thanks for reminding me to put this book on the must replace list.

It just might be the year to watch Kurosawa's "Men Who Tread on the Tiger's Tail."

Dear Mr Crane,

Happy New Year to you, and glad to see your new year's resolution to do more and better blogging! I will certainly continue reading up.

I'm not sure whether you consider me as one of your 'tigers' - as a communitarian with a radical-traditionalist reading of the Classics I do disagree with you a fair bit of the time, after all, but I try to keep my critiques well-thought and constructive.

Personally, though, I feel there is a lot of wisdom to be had here. I've almost ruined valued friendships with other people over heated discussions of political and social issues, and those do require a great deal of circumspection. I'm not as good as I should be at finding the Mean on such matters, I think - that will be a good New Year's resolution for me, anyway.

Looking forward to your writing - I know the quality will be superb!

All the best,
