Mom is somewhere near the equator bathed in 20-degree plus sunshine, and it's been an extremely busy week for me at work, so I don't actually sense too much of the holiday spirit around me. However through phones calls and texts from friends and family, I was reminded that today is the first day of the Chinese New Year - Year of the Horse.
My mom was born in a Year of the Horse, and every bit about the traits of this zodiac is true on her: honest, genuine, easy-going, friendly, animated, active and energetic, and they have a straightforward and positive attitude towards life. They are known for their communication skills and are exceedingly witty. I am a Dragon, and it is said that Dragon and Horse together represent high energy. Therefore, this is going to be a good year for Dragon in both health and wealth - thanks Mom!
I have every intent to bring a bit of equestrian chic into my house this year.
