haiku dragons & munich dragon
today is Chinese new year: with new moon, the year of the dragon starts. to celebrate this event, a fabulous dragon haiku collection is now featured in the blueprint book blog: "The Language of Dragons" - a free PDF-book.
here's one of my favourites from it:
up from the cliffs
the language of dragons
- Peter Newton
and more dragons: in Munich i came across an impressive green dragon, right at Marienplatz - see photo above. and yesterday, during a sunday drive, i came across a bridge named "Drachenlochbrücke" - "Dragon Hole Bridge". i tried to find out more about the place, without luck - but i came across another place, in Switzerland, with a similar name: Drachenloch: the highest prehistoric cave in Europe, with relicts that date back 50.000 year, a time when people believed that dragons were real - a time when they became part of legends and tales that still reverberate in our time.
happy new year!
may the water dragon bring good energies~~
