Losar Greetings: Iron Tiger 2010

You probably already know -- this is the Year of the Iron Tiger, and today, February 14, 2010, is Losar, or Tibetan New Year, 2137.

Sometimes, the Chinese and Tibetan lunar calendars differ in the first day of the first month, but this year, they do not. So, in Sino-Vietnamese practice, this is also the Lunar New Year day. It is also Valentine's Day in the United States.

I have gone on retreat -- with "flexible boundaries," as they say -- and I set this to post automatically, in my absence. We will resume regular publication on or before May 15, 2010. In the interim, there will be a few auto-posts to commemorate surprises, special dates, or pressing events.

Is it retreat or prison where you're heading?
