Beginning and Ending

Today is the first day of the Chinese New Year of the horse; also, it's the end of January 2014. The beginning and the ending fall on the same day. I found it interesting and thought-provoking. It seems that beginning and ending are two separate things. But, are they? Anyone who has paid close attention to nature knows that they are two-in-one and one-in-two. It's a very profound concept. A concept that I come to understand deeper and deeper as I grow older.

I will make this--beginning and ending--a writing prompt for myself. Wait a minute. Didn't I say earlier in my blog that I seldom write to writing prompts? This one is created by myself, so I should be able to write something about it.

What comes to your mind when you think of a horse? Kentucky Derby? I've thought about it, too. And, of course I've thought about all the Chinese sayings about a horse.

Have a happy Year of the Horse! Hope your horse will get you to the finish line fast!
