The Year Of The Ox
Whew! Finally, that dastardly rat (sorry, rat pallies!) is gone and the earnest ox now rules the new year as the 2nd animal on the 12-year cycle Chinese zodiac calendar.
In case you are wondering what I'm rambling about, you can read about the 12 animals here. I've also explained why the cat doesn't have a spot in the calendar.
According to feng shui masters, the Year Of The Ox is generally a better year for all.
In the past, I would say "bull!" to all this but I am desperate! I want to believe that 2021 is going to be a brighter year for everyone.
It has to be.
The pandemic has dragged on too long — too many lives and livelihoods have been destroyed and we are all fatigued.
I want to travel again ...
Attend Sunday Mass ...
Attend my son's graduation ceremony which has been postponed indefinitely ...
Have a big family get together ...
Watch a movie in the cinema ...
Binge on an all-you-can-eat buffet in a fancy restaurant ...
I just want to push the play button of life that covid-19 has paused.
And oh, if you have had a bad start to 2021, here's your chance for a do-over — a fresh start.
Have an ox-picious 2021, pallies!

Haha! This cartoon of the Chinese *Three Wise Men practicing social distancing and wearing masks puts a smile on my face.
