Hmmm we had not realized this before, with all the distractions of this spring but… it is in fact, according to Chinese tradition, THE YEAR OF THE RAT.
I am fortunate that I receive annual postcards from Seattle’s amazing poet and painter Alan Lau. I would otherwise not realize these important cyclical matters, nor get to see how he applies his creativity so fluidly. Each one is hand-painted!
But, it being the rats’ year – well, it would definitely explain things.
Alan Lau’s work can be found/bought here.
