Happy New Year!
« on: February 07, 2008, 11:49:39 am »
Happy Chinese New Year, that is (known as Tet in Vietnam)! Today marks the beginning of the lunar year for the cultures of east Asia, this new year falling under the sign of the Rat--ergo, we have now entered the Year of the Rat (the first year of the twelve-year cycle). I dreamt of a rat this morning, which was very fitting as I reflected on it upon awakening.

So best wishes to everyone for the new year--the first Year of the Rat to fall within the twenty-first century.

Scott, that's weird!  My roommate told me yesterday that she woke up shouting "No!" during the night because she had dreamt of a child going over to touch a rat.  :o

Anyway, Happy New Year to you, too!  ;D

Interesting! I was touching a rat in my dream, and not liking it at all (in fact, I was trying to get away from the thing, which I felt sorry for, but which repulsed me nonetheless).

LOL Kelda - you're right!  Nearly New Year.

I want to add a big Thank You to all of you who shared your lives with me in 2010. And going back to 2006. It's meant the world, and I am waiting with bated breath what 2011 may hold for us.

One lesson from last year - we do as good a job of propping each other up during the bad times as we do enjoying ourselves when times are better. That's as good a definition of family, of community, as I know.

Happy New Year to all my Brokie friends.

I hope you all have good plans for tonight, wherever you celebrate! I will celebrate with my family. My oldest daughter has a friend over, so we are two adults and four kids. We're outnumbered, eeeeek! We'll have cheese fondue and then it's board game night, yay!

I am shaking my head in awe and wonder at our friend Chuck for spending about 12 hours so far today, sending so many of us sweet messages with pictures of ourselves that he took at various Brokie gatherings this year.  Cutting, pasting, cropping -- good golly!  What a sweet and awesome way to be reminded of how much love flows between us all, and how being together made 2010 so special.

THANK YOU, CHUCK!!!

Happy new year to all my wonderful friends...

Meeting some of you in 2010 was the highlight of the year...

Have a fantastic 2011.....Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I'm already more than 2 hours into 2011!  So far, it's been a good year.  ;D

I wish all my precious Brokie friends a wonderful new year, with only good things to come.

And hope to see you at various gatherings!

Looks like a very fun time, Chuck! Happy 2020 to you all.

I wanted to have a quiet New Year's after getting back from the mountains on Monday. I did see fireworks though. I was making a special dish of stuffed poblano peppers and accidentally touched my eye. A quick shower later, I finally got to eat them, but was not in the mood for any activities requiring seeing.
