The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

A Japanese New Year
Heading to our neighborhood temple on New Year's Day to pray for a good 2012.
The kids with otoshidama (money given at New Year's) from Mom and Dad. I made the envelopes that we put the money in for the kids. Can you tell that they are supposed to be dogs?
Every year I say I am going to make it and this year I finally did. Traditional ozoni with spinach, carrots, chicken and mochi (rice cake) in broth. Really good and very filling, if I do say so myself.
