The Peabody Gallery is leaving downtown Los Gatos. Bummer. I loved the nostalgic Dr. Seuss artwork and sculpture. Good karma comes to the Museums of Los Gatos in the form of an extended run of it's gallery space on Santa Cruz Avenue.
On a happier note... Happy Lunar New Year
The Year of the Ox, which starts today will be the most peaceful year globally since 2000- (Ancient Chinese secret.) I am very good at keeping secrets but the only peacefulness I enjoy is at the acupuncturist with a ton of needles prodding me to become more zen. Zen is good so I shall embrace the year of the ox.
The global outlook will be helped by the fact that incoming U.S. President Barack Obama was born in a "yin earth" year, like President Abraham Lincoln. French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Taiwan's President are also "yin earth" people. More zen...This is a new generation of leaders. They are more calm, humane and charismatic, so toast to all things calming this Chinese New Year. Peaceful in my household = Club Penguin.
Speaking of humane and charismatic, Author James Vollbracht will speak tonite as an articulate ambassador of communal bliss. 7-9PM at LGHS Theatre. Admission is free, James book Stopping at Every Lemonade Stand, How to Create a Culture That Cares for Kids is an inspiring read. He will also be available for book signing. Not to bore you with the details, but I have expressed a pocketful of exuberance around this little gem of a book in prior blogs. Anyone who needs a pick me up; seek out this book-or you can always seek me out for a Q & A on SSRI's pros/cons...feel good and do good- what's not to love!
....what a way to kick off the Lunar New Year! "Gung Hey Fat Choy"
