元宵节

FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
Today

We are now a couple of weeks into the Year of the Rooster. I do not have any jokes, quips riddles etc. to bring to the party but here is cause for a quiet smile from three years ago:


Nowadays one hears rather less about András Pető and his wisdom of the Orient (including those wretched fish). Indeed, one hears rather little about András Pető generally..

It really is time to begin refreshing his story. But please not with old Chinese wisdoms such as offered here, appropriate as some of them may seem!
