The Year of You Decide

I was pretty stoked to celebrate the year of the dragon yesterday. It inspired me to enter a new year ruled by a mythological creature, one that I can't even look up in my Animal Speak book. "Groovy," I thought, "if I was in a battle, I would really dig having a dragon on my side."

Lucky for me, they have Angel Cards at Shree, this super cool yoga studio where I teach. Yesterday before my class, I picked the "Clarity" card.

The word "dragon" comes from French, which comes from Latin, which comes from the Greek word δράκων which means serpent or giant sea fish. Check it: the Greek word δράκων comes from an even earlier stem, drak-, which is a stem from even EARLIER word, derkesthai, which means to see clearly. Yep. I'm pretty ding-dong sure we can see whatever we want in whatever it is we're looking at. Helps to be clear first though.
