Year of the Dragon

Happy New Year to those who prefer the lunar calendar! Today marks the beginning of the Year of the Dragon.

The Year of the Dragon is my year. Every twelve years, it reasserts itself. According to such astrological calculations, dragon people display certain characteristics. I'm not sure what usefulness can be found in the characteristics attributed, but I cannot deny that I read them with the same wistful wondering I might bring to a fortune cookie: Maybe it's true and wise, but even if it is, the "truth" and a couple of dollars still only buys a bus ride.

Happy New Year!
