Dragons in My Life

January 24, 2012

Yesterday was the beginning of the Chinese New Year. This year is the Year of the Dragon. I was born in a Dragon year. Symbolically, the Dragon is considered the luckiest year in the Chinese zodiac.

When I was younger, I studied many types of Kung Fu systems. One of my temples participated in the annual Dragon Dance as part of the Chinese New Year celebration.

There are many Dragons in my life. I have never consciously thought about it, somehow I've just have been drawn to them. Here are some of the many Dragons in My Life.
