In the last days of the Year of the Earth Dog, measure how far you have come in spite of the obstacles, lack of clarity and apparent signs of a crumbling world. Ditch the doubts. Take care of daily tasks. Simplify your life. Empty drawers and make room for renewal, even if it seems remote or inconceivable. Finish offloading painful memories and sorrow.
As soon as possible, get out for a walk in nature. In town, find a tree in the neighborhood. Greet the tree. It will return the favor in time.
See you in Paris on Feb. 9th for yearly Chinese New Year Lectures. Since 2001!
