Happy Chinese New Year!

Are you ready to ride the Dragon?

I just read that in China, today is celebrated as the new years day. As it falls together with a new moon, it's the ideal time to make a fresh start and let our dreams and plans grow. It's the year of the water-dragon. The Dragon is in fact the major symbol of good fortune in Chinese Astrology.  According to tradition, the Dragon brings in the Four Blessings of the East: wealth, virtue, harmony and longevity.  I hope we can expect grand things this year - and that good luck will be coming our way! And here's the lucky cat to wave you all into a fabulous new week!

  7. My precious friend,

    Oh how sorry I am to hear that you are still not completely well. This virus has taken many of us by storm and has lasted for MONTHS! I am finally back to normal, but I don't know for how long; it was a mildly cold day today, but I had to go out to get my students from recess and I did not have my coat, for I was not expecting to have to go outside. I fear that I will get sick again, but FINGERS CROSSED I will not be affected!

    JUST KEEP GETTING THAT REST and create, create, CREATE!

    LOVE TO YOU, Anita

  8. Happy Chinese New Year Martina and wishing you much good fortune, success, health and properity in this Water Dragon year! I love your lucky cat! I have one too.
