What will the new year bring?


We headed down to Chinatown to see some of the New Year's Celebrations. At the New Year, it is auspicious to offer something sweet, like oranges or donuts, to the dieties at the temple. It is also a good idea to have your fortune told.


This particular fortune teller is nothing if not thorough. I watched him check and re-check charts and take notes...


I hope he foresaw good luck!

Walk in the light!

"Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness."

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.” 

- Neil deGrasse Tyson
