A letter from Red Pine recalling the entrance way into the house of writer John Blofeld in Bangkok:

“I have a black and white photograph of John Blofeld’s yin-yang designed doorway, leading into his garden, at his old home in Bangkok.

Over the doorway was written the first part of the last line of a four-line Li Pai poem: There’s another world.

The rest of the line would have added: Beyond the world of man.”
