    ... anything that was in my reach and would retract my hand, always with some sort of grain or sand being left on it. Yin didn’t understand what was so joyous about the experience, but he’s already used to being ancient, and to me I felt like I was watching history unfold before my eyes.We found a market that was willing to buy every single one of our products, but I, probably to the dismay of Yin, wanted to continue to the bloody end.
