This chapter describes the process by which writing a historical monograph became more biographical and personal through chance encounters with the subject’s colleagues and descendants. Meeting with Tanxu’s dharma-heir, Master Lok To, enabled the author to travel in the footsteps of Tanxu, and bring a personal component to complement the historical research.
