Happy New Year

The Year of the Boar; May it bring peace to so many areas of conflict, wise leaders to confront the issues, a populace who cares more for water than 'Super Bowls,' and beauty in the 'little things' that we touch each day. On a lighter note, what a joy to bring in a new year and all the hope it brings! Kampai, and I wonder what great finds we will bring to the world this year......A traditional okazari-ornament hanging on my front door in Numazu, and other scenes from my Dec.31st day here, moutain shrines in my neighborhood with traditional new year's decorations, and night at Daichuji Zen temple steps. And now to go play George Harrison's "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)" and walk off to Daichuji to chant the Heart Sutra and ring in the new year, just an hour away.....HNY! BTW, this year is the Year of the Boar and what characteristics a boar possesses can be read here: (Kotoshi mo yoroshiku onegaishimasu!)
