2013... Year of The Snake !

Goodbye Dragon enter the Snake !

In Japan everyone and I mean everyone sends New Year wishes out in the form of a postcard.
The post office handles mass amount of cards that are delivered on New Years Day.
This is my very late postcard that will be mailed out on Tuesday. Very very late !

The back of the postcard. I put some years in, are you a Snake ?

Last years Ozouni : Mochi soup for the New Year,
that daughter made.

One of my New Year Day cards complete with explanation of all the lucky symbols.

Since it is New Years Eve. . .

The Square Ones want to remind you of what happens when you have too much fun
with too many bubbles.

Here is your pretty to start the week of the New Year

Moon rise over Thimble Peak.
This was taken through my studio window so you can see some reflection
but I like the double moon.

Happy New Year !
Be safe, warm and may we all be hopeful.

cheers,  parsnip
music. . . Viva la Vida,  Coldplay


  1. My year, the year of the dragon is ending. Hopefully the snake will bring good tidings to all.

  2. I'm a 1964 dragon! None of the pictures have loaded Parsnip....I don't know if it's just me but there are just little icons instead. Happy New Year!
