Yumenguan , Dunhuang (Jade Gate).
Uncultured winds move over mountains, through trees, across stones howling cold against a wall and a gate.
Jade, the familiar name now the colour of the unknown, of barbarian deserts and the limits of a middle civilization.
Jade, now the colour of adventure, of escape, and of a new life waiting... and just as easily the end of this one.
Uncultured winds and a hard unassured path, trodden with intrepidation...
