“As the bright moon shines over the sea, from far away you share this moment with me.”
This is a famous quote from Zhang Jiuling, a poet and graceful prime minister in the height of the Tang dynasty. Shaoguan, Zhang Jiuling’s hometown, has a lot of pretty elegant study rooms. These study rooms have inspired reading, from city to village, from river bank to distant mountain. Kids after school, employees after work and the elderly coming home are all reluctant to leave the study room.
