Happy New Year

Who is resolute?

Without resolution, nothing is resolved.
and so:

I resolve

  • to be freer
  • to altar my alter-bodhi-ego
  • be kind to nones, mon k eys and the unholy

Happy Easter New year (as always, starts tomorrow) ...

    2019 marks the year of the Police Pig according to the Chinese Horoscope ( if one believes in this kind of thing)....

    This little piggy went to market,(to be sold)
    This little piggy stayed at home,
    This little piggy had roast beef, (fattening up)
    This little piggy had none,
    This little piggy cried,
    "Wee-wee-wee!" All the way home.(to the slaughter house)

    ...which was no fairy tale ending for the poor pig....

    We already have a @lobster, so are there any members who are pigs ?... :)

  • Thanks everyone <3

    You will, like Bodhi Cinderella, 'go to the Ball' and marry Prince Charming Gautama ...

    New Year Bodhi Resolves:

    • Less cake, more alchemical wedding
    • Stop killing Buddhas
    • Be kind to the manically Mahahaha ... Yana

    Actually, the Year of the Pig begins on February 4 or 5 next year.

    Pig is mild and a lucky animal representing carefree fun, good fortune and wealth. Personality traits of the people born under the sign of the Pig are happy, easygoing, honest, trusting, educated, sincere and brave.

    My daughter was born in The Year of the Pig.... She's the most wonderful human being I know...

    At midnight I was woken by the sound of fireworks going off ( thanks a lot Tang Destiny China-but there's no evil spirits to scare off here )

    Well it's new years day and nothing's changed which means everything's changing... :)

    @Buddhalotus are you from Singapore? or are you just visiting or living/working there?

    I have fond memories of the old Singapore, the night food markets where some stall owners had pet rats on string leases, the exotic smells and sounds and at the time very cheap electrical equipment...The Singapore before Lee Yuan Yu came to power and cleaned up the place...It's nice clean and tidy now ...I guess this is just the swings and roundabouts of progress and change...

    Singapore was in a sense the first exotic country I visited, this was back in early 1972 on my way back to the UK to visit family and travel over Europe...My big ( well one of many ) OE so to speak...

    This was the days when cheap ship jet travel was around ...Cruise ship from Perth to Singapore ( 6 nights) then jet from Singapore to London...

    Happy New Year everyone. About 6 1/2 hours to go in Alaska. This year, no worries about the old dog going crazy on account of the fireworks - she's lost a lot of her hearing and is a happier dog because of it.

    Stayed up to watch the London fireworks on tv at midnight. 10 minutes of continuous “spectacular” fireworks. Is it just me that finds it grossly excessive these days!?

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Its better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt Moderator

    We watched the Christmas episode of 'Gogglebox', (it's very funny, but a somewhat ironic thing to do - watch the reactions of others, who in turn, are watching tv themselves!) an hilarious hour of Frankie Boyle, and then hit the sack at about 01.15. Did nothing special, but did what we wanted to do, not what might have been expected of us to do....

    (Participants of Gogglebox are expected to watch and critique programmes dictated to them by the Producers. It involves sitting in front of the TV for a long, long time, but they are handsomely paid for doing nothing!)

  • BuddhalotusBuddhalotus Here and now Explorer

    It's been a pleasure meeting everyone.
    I wish all of you a Happy New Year.

    Thank you for all the lovely Buddhist discussions but I may be following another path now.
    Thank you, @federica and all of you for your kindness
