Happy Lunar New Year

If you're not keeping track (or even if you are) today ushers in the year of the sheep/goat.

Happy Tet to each of you!

I have no plans to shoot firecrackers (to scare away demons) or visit dead relatives, who are said to walk on the Day of the Dead/New Year. Neither do I plan to burn "hell money". Nor will I bark at the Moon (any more often or with more gusto than I do now).

I suspect that today will be more or less like every other day for me.

I don't know which Buddhist copied my 
face for this mask -- but job well done.


  1. lol, I can hear them now... "please... do it again grandpa"!

  2. "Year of the Goat" -- that seems strangely appropriate, given our uniquely effective stance on countering Violent Extremism.

  3. I woke up this morning, feeling like a goat. I'm glad it's official.

  4. Barking at the moon is underrated.


It's virtual - it's a mirage - it's life
