I've posted chapter 19
of The Wings of Dreams.
"Riding the wings of the phoenix" echoes the title of the book. Tonan
(図南) refers to the fabled southern flight of the phoenix (鵬), with the same nuance as "Go west, young man." So the saying "The wings (tsubasa
) of the phoenix" came to mean setting off with big plans in mind.
