It’s the Year of the Horse and I’m ready to celebrate tomorrow by doing nothing, which is the proper way to honor the Lunar New Year according to my wife. No work, no fire for cooking, no knives, etc. I can get used to this.
You can enjoy this gold horse head by Diasqua International Ltd. that’s pictured and a full gallery of Year of the Horse jewelry at the JewelleryNetAsia website, where I write a weekly column.
According to TravelChinaGuide.com, “the spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people's ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able.”
Those of you born in this festival year share the honor with a diverse group of people including Louisa May Alcott, Chopin, Davy Crockett, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Sandra Day O'Connor, Rembrandt, Teddy Roosevelt, Sir Isaac Newton, Barbara Streisand, Jackie Chan, Jerry Seinfeld, John Travolta, Leonard Bernstein, Oprah Winfrey, Paul McCartney, Rembrandt, Kobe Bryant, Genghis Khan, Emperor Kangxi and Yongzheng of China’s Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911).
Sadly my rest will only last a day. Saturday it's back to work. I hope you can take break as well.
