I celebrated Chinese New Year today. There was no fireworks or dragon dances. Well, not the traditional kinds anyways. But there was plenty of other kinds of fire and nuances.
Mine is not what you would call a healthy workplace right now. I feel like I’m walking on hot coals and breathing fire most days. But today being a Sunday, I let out some steam. A few of us did….a little blue language and some laughter at break time. I’m not sure if it did any good for me.
I’m looking forward to Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. It is only two days away. It will be good to enter the desert and wander silently through the barren landscape. When I come out on the other side in 30 days, I hope I will have gained some peace and wisdom.
