Happy Chinese New Year folks!
Most Chinese folks (yours truly not included) believe that the year of the Dragon is one of the most auspicious years of the lunar calendar, but I have to say that with all the hoopla surrounding it, I couldn’t wait for it to end. And so it did last Sunday as we rang in the new year in the lunar calendar – the year of the snake.
I’ve heard stories (unfounded of course, but no less entertaining) of how snakes were actually dragons without legs, and that thrifty people are just going to cut off the legs of their dragon decorations to make do for this year. I’ve yet to see some, but it sure is a heck of an idea!
On that very random note, here’s wishing everyone a healthy and joyful year ahead, filled with adventure for all your endeavors! There’s no better time than now to make full use of that passion of yours and go make a dent in the universe.
