      2012 - Year of the Dragon




      初夢や辰の上に立つ富士の山
      hatsu yume ya tatsu no ue ni tatsu Fuji no Yama


      first dream -
      a dragon at the foot
      of Mount Fuji





      Katsushika Hokusai 葛飾北斎




      I was walking behind an old woman
      through a magic forest.
      The path was steep.
      She walked faster and faster
      around the many bends.
      Finally we crossed the pass
      and there it was.
