Yellow Over The Mountain
By Peter Lay & Zaiming Wang
Yellow Over The Mountain is a conversation between two people, dual written in both English and Chinese, about the beginning of an unfinished journey to seek life through aesthetics of art and philosophy.
The journey began in June 2014 with an exchange of ideas by email. However, the words in this book have been mainly taken from text messages and emails between March and June 2016.
It is told in a largely metaphorical way transforming into a philosophical journey of life, love and art in a mythical world where parts of the ‘self’ become animals, people and plants and share a unique relationship with each other against the backdrop of a failed marriage
Such is life.
Both Paperback & Kindle editions of this book can be purchased on Amazon

Scientifically, we were told that we only have one life. I have no idea if it is true or not, as many philosophies tell us that we have a pre-existence and that life is a phenomenon of transmigration.
In the present, life has physical body, a soul and spirit; the last two things are invisible, but they produce feeling, emotion, desire and passion. In my mind the present life is largely on the surface, it is not the whole truth, not real as we see by eyes.
Art should help us to understand the philosophy and truth of life. Artists try to interpret and reveal as such. This is why we weave dreams, to inspire us.
