Happy New Year Everyone!!
Daruma! Happy New Year Everyone! If you're interested in the New Year meanderings of this crazy lady and learning a touch about a near and dear New Year Japanese tradition, take a look at this video!
*Apologies in advance, I realized after that I hadn't mentioned the second eye. It gets painted on once the goal is achieved and the Darumas get burned in a special ceremony at the local temple at the end of the year, at which time a new one is purchased. This a perfect example of not living the past and having a blank slate, every year. You guys are amazing and it's amazing how much we'll all continue to grow! Happy New Year!
