2012 Year of the Dragon

Happy New Year!!!!!

Yes, I know, it's the last day of January, and the New Year in the U.S. is now ancient news, however, I tend to get excited when Chinese New Year begins, and especially this year, as it falls under my animal sign, the Year of the Dragon.

There is something beautiful about the way the Chinese New Year celebrates honoring relatives who have passed away, and celebrating life, by giving us all an animal symbol; which they believe reflects certain characteristics, and even life paths of those born under each animal sign. 

Although, of course, we all know the Dragon is mythical, and not a true member of the animal kingdom, it is considered to be the luckiest sign to be born under, so I'm betting on 2012 being an AMAZING year;-) 

Here's a GREAT piece of news to start off the New Year.... I'm playing some shows near YOU!!!!!

This Saturday, February 4th, 2012, I will have the distinct pleasure of being Carolyn Wonderland's special guest at Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz, CA.... you can buy tickets online:
