After Leaving

The article posted today was originally supposed to be included in One Way Street 16 New Beijinger. It is a collection of four small chronicles of Beijing by Wei Yi. Each set of chronicles starts with a landmark: Tianqiao, Huaqiao Building, Temple of Earth, and Zhongnanhai. They are not just landmarks, they carry the complex trajectories of people’s lives and the historical changes of Beijing, touching on the hidden illnesses and dark pains of the city, like the wind whistling over the cold night, leaving behind a few light or heavy sighs and emotions.
