Happy New Year!

     Tomorrow is the Chinese New Year, so Gung Hay Fat Choy!  It will be the year of the snake, specifically the water snake.  You can read about all the characteristics of a water snake if you wish (this is a good site, among others), but basically what they boil down to is this:  water snakes are mysterious, mesmerizing, and quiet.  They are planners and focus intently on what they want. 

     Snakes in general have a wonderful ability to slough off their old skin so that they can grow.  For this year, let's adopt that ability and let go of  that which no longer fits us.  Let's also focus on what we do want, and plan carefully on how to get there.  There's no need to be noisy about things, but rather let's conserve our energy and use it for the purpose of letting go and moving on.  Let's make this year a step in the direction of our dreams for a better world.
