Chinese New Year -

I read the rituals associated with the Chinese New Year and take extra care this morning. I go to my yard and bring in fresh greens and Camellia flowers.  I honor my ancestors, and fill my fountain with fresh water.   It is a time to cleanse and so I toss some things and put others away, bring spring into my home.  Yesterday I bought two miniature rose bushes, and I am enjoying their tiny blossoms and buds.   Wild mustard and radish are blooming on the hills.

I think of words this morning and how they seem to be so over-used.   It would be lovely if each political campaign proclaimed a day of silence periodically, and showed beautiful images of flowers, mountains, jellyfish, and coasts.
