To Peace & Creativity

Happy Year of the Sheep!
Or is it the Year of the Goat? Apparently the Chinese themselves, aren't even certain:

"Actually, Chinese people are also not quite sure about that. In Chinese the word 羊 (yáng) is a generic term, and can refer to a sheep (绵羊), goat (山羊), ram/buck (公羊 male sheep or goat), 羚羊 (antelope), etc. There is a lack of clear definition on the zodiac "Goat" in Chinese history."

In either case this animal symbol stands for tranquility and the arts. Which is reassuring - I, for one, am very much longing for a year of harmony & creativity.

So, here's to peaceful & creative pursuits!



And here's a cute goat for good measure:



And of course, some positive dragon-energy is always good to add to the mix!

In the year ahead I will definitely need the calm, nurturing energy of the Sheep. May 2015 treat you gently and bring you much creative energy!
