Well, I don’t know what to say. I have been very sporadic with this blog and generally pretty scatty in life…I don’t mean shitty and I definitely don’t mean “weee bap boop ba dooo bah” scatty, but a general “all over the map” meaning of the word. I’ve been a busy girl, learning how to settle into one life and stop giving into my itchy gypsy feet whenever I feel a tingling travel sensation.
But I must say, I am getting into the groove of learning and making mistakes and cleaning up my own mess and scurrying around to make things work in the nick of time. What is life if we are not on our toes???
January 23rd, 2012 marked the New Year of the Dragon, a creature of myth and legend, and a symbol of good fortune and intense power. Yesterday was also a day that put a little fear into those of us living in Tokyo. New numbers have been released suggesting that there is a 75% chance that the big earthquake, the one people have been talking about since 1923, will shake us in the next 4 years. After the devastation this country has seen since the gargantuan earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, this is a very sobering thought. No one is invincible. No one is more valuable than another.
So with a big heart, lots of love and somewhat heavy thoughts, I face the Dragon and enter this new year. Living in fear is not something I believe in, so I am making it my mission this year to live in love and to give; to make people smile, to radiate the positivity I believe in and to celebrate the amazing life that I have been blessed with.
Something tells me it’s gonna be a very POWERFUL year!
