Dragon

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:

Lunar eclipse on 12/10/11

Watched a dragon dance

Rang in the New Year

Reminded myself that I live on an island

Saw a sand Great Wall of China instead of a sand castle at the beach
