In the pursuit of learning

Tao Te Ching
Forty Eight
“In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired. every day something is dropped. Less and less is done Until non-action is achieved. When nothing is done, nothing is left undone. The world is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be ruled by interfering.”
 Sam entranced by one of the dragons.

                                                            one of the street fairs

                                                               time to play with fireworks

Our whole family enjoyed the Chinese New Year’s  celebration- parade, fair and fireworks-colorful, popular and fascinating, with plenty of people and sunny cool weather. There were lots of dragons big and not so big. 
                                  the biggest dragon at the tail of the parade.

Sam, our grandson, is enthralled by the dragon. Of course, also by the fireworks. It’s said that the dragon is the Chinese symbol of power and wisdom. It is made up of different parts of animals-tiger, fish, snake, and an eagle.

What a celebration! I have yet to attend a Chinese New Year celebration. So glad to see that your grandson is enjoying it. Our son, at the same age was scared silly but things like that...thankfully, he has outgrown it. :)
