Year of the Dragon started out with Chinese New Year celebration in our new location in town. Friends joined in the Lion Dance and Reuben Medina and Friends played music for us. Discussion and sharing of Chinese Spring Cleansing Festival stories and kite making.
In the Summer, Guest Artists Alison Hong-Novotney shared Afro/Cuban Folkloric dance and music with us.
Hight light of TIS Fall Bazaar, 2012 was the lecture and music performance by composer, poet, Latif Bolat, from Turkey. We heard beautiful music played on traditional instrument and learned about Sufi culture, poetry by Rumi, and historical background of Mr. Bolat's country. Award-winning author Robert Egby shared his new book about sprial energy in many locations around the world and in Northern New Mexico.
When the snow came to announce winter, we slowed down for reflections and to appreciate our friends and family.
Thus the Year of the Dragon fully enriched us in many ways. Thanks to All.
