Today is the year of the dragon! Two thousand and twelve, the year 4709 in the lunar calendar. A great year of new beginnings, transformations, chaos and liberation! It is my hope that great things happen this year.
As a fan of Bruce Lee and Morihei Ueshiba (founder of Aikido), it is only appropriate that I share some photos of said martial artists.
Bruce Lee was known affectionately as 小龍哥 (“little dragon brother”) by his co-stars during his Hong Kong movie days. Thanks to Flo Li, I was reminded a few days back that Morihei Ueshiba O’Sensei often referred himself as a “great dragon spirit” to his students. Come to think of it, O’Sensei survived many duels in his life.
Without further ado, I wish all of you many red packets of money and luck and wealth – of whatever you may need. Until next time 新年快樂, 恭喜發財!
