Welcome, O Dragon

Happy Year of the Dragon!

(It can only be better than the Year of the Murderous Rabbit, for which I'd had such high hopes—for a misguided day or two.)

I shall mull soon on dragons in fairy tales and German opera and such, but I've always been rather fond of dragons, and especially this amiable Edward Gorey creature ready to bestow his largess on us.

    Bruce Lee was born in the Year of the Dragon.
    Happy Year of the Dragon, Christie!

    1. And to you! Hope the dragons dispel our demons—except those necessary for creating.
