Happy New Year Everyone! I like to begin my annual celebrations now, like everyone else, but we all have the benefit of carrying-on with our celebrations through the Asian New year as well! The Asian year is a lunar year with an extra moon, thus the extra month (i.e. “the Tibetan year is comprised of either 12 or 13 lunar months, each beginning and ending with a new moon. A thirteenth month is added every two or three years, so that an average Tibetan year is equal to the solar year”. WikkiP) So just a note to let you know that your celebrations should go on until at least Jan. 31st. Woo-Hoo!!
I am ready to think all things “new” about now: last year was good, with only a few disappointments. Musically, I had a tour fall through. Community-wise, some muggings and more crime on our street affected me emotionally more than I expected. Didn’t want to talk about it, here or anywhere: I felt we simply needed to ACT and quickly to prevent a pall of defeat from settling in. We started our first street teams/neighborhood watch group, and with everyone’s interest and energy, things are better. There is less fear (I’ll talk about all of this later- what we learned, etc.) Meanwhile, I’m back with a better attitude. We just did an “Out with the Old” smudge of our home, the street, and for me- old attitudes. I love the traditional, Native Indian ways of clearing and cleansing. It works so well for something like this.
ON THE HORIZON- 2014: I am happy to say that the vision of my jewelery venture- Three Muses- is manifesting. I will be expanding while finetuning certain styles. And, I’ve started not one, but TWO new musical projects!! I will gush on all of this soon enough, but first…
I MUST stop to WISH ALL of YOU who take the time to visit me here, an *Amazing*, Crazy-happy new year–Everywhere you are! May you enjoy:
