Of Beasts and Sages
Today is 2016-02-08, the first day of the Year of the Fire Monkey, based on the Lunar calendar. Or, "Chinese New Year/Spring Festival/春節", as I tend to say.
I'm in DC now, as we had my great aunt Annie's funeral today. Interestingly enough, her church, where we had the service, is IN DC's Chinatown. So, that seems auspicous.
January has been a bit tumultuous, but I feel like now I can REALLY start 2016. So, I'll use the Lunar Calendar.
For me, I think Lunar 2016 will be a year of Beasts and Sages. More on what that MEANS later. I just wanted to make a quick post to say, "I Love You" to my great aunt. And, to mark the beginning of my Year of Beasts and Sages.
Let's see what happens.
