    Happy New Year, although I say that with some reservation because I ordered a bamboo uke and acoustic bass uke directly from China over two weeks ago, but it looks like because of the long celebration China does for New Years, they seem to be on hold somewhere in country and might not get to me for another 3-5 weeks, bummer.

    Here's hoping that the year of the rat doesn't involve me seeing any actual rats. :-)
    Happy New Year.

    Here's the couplet I brushed this morning in honor of New Year, posted on my studio door in Burbank. An old traditional sentiment, loosely translated:

    天增歲月人增寿--Heaven bless with long life
    春满乾坤福满门--Spring full heaven and earth bless the whole family

    Nice sentiments. I wish I could see your calligraphy more clearly. Thank you for posting these.
