I’m in between two new years right now: the Gregorian and the lunar, the western and eastern, the one of my past and the one of my present. It’s 2012 (the purported year of the end of the world), and the Year of the Dragon, the mightiest of the signs of the Chinese zodiac, characterized by dominance and ambition. My year, the year of the Rabbit, is on its way out.
I have a few vague new year resolutions: keep writing, read more, try harder, be healthier, be more content.
Things I’ve done in the past couple months:
Saw a sand Great Wall of China instead of a sand castle at the beach
Visited Hong Kong park with the city rising up in the background
