The Silk Road

China. Imagine looking down a road--a light breeze, silk panels hanging, of here to there obscured. Each panel once sequestered the ancient pasts now co-mingle with modernity as each breeze lift the panels and shake out the indelible past clinging to a complex modernity foreign in every aspect. Images of the majesty that was...emerge with each flap and coil passing from one light breeze to another. How to change and not lose sight of who or what you have been. Once a mighty nation admired and coveted by many. Through out its history China has maintained its own interests and methods.
