We have lost even this twilight. No one saw us this evening hand in hand while the blue night dropped out of the world. I have seen from my window the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops. Sometimes a piece of sun burned like a coin between my hands. I remembered you with my soul clenched in the sadness of mine that you know. Where were you then? Who else was there? Saying what? Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly when I have sad and feel you are far away? The book fell that is always turned to at twilight and my cape rolled like a hurt dog at my feet. Always, always you recede through the evenings towards where the twilight goes erasing statues.

Great fun! Last night I took a walk along the river bank, and saw many lanterns, some gliding above the river and some flying high in the sky. The little flames were dancing in the darkness, maybe some one would be able to hear them yelling as well, "Hello, World!". I was just wondering if there was one among them from Russia ;)

Today I visited my relatives, had a barbecue with my cousins and then went fishing with them, which has been a routine for some years. As usual we caught no fish. Actually I really doubt if there are any fish in the pond, we haven't even caught one so far. It is hard to say if I like it. Those activities are so familiar that they don't attract me anymore. But, seeing kids wearing new clothes, chasing through alleys and laughing, happiness is spreading in the air. In such atmosphere it is hard to not like this great festival, as you can feel happiness itself is becoming a custom. However, for me the celebration this year won't last for long, because three days later I have to go back to school for extra lessons. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your winter holiday!

I'm glad that you like them ;) As for me, I was born in 1992, so I'm a monkey. Somehow I don't like monkeys so much, so during my childhood I had been wishing I were a snake or a horse ;-D The celebration will last for almost half a month, from the New Year's Eve to the Lantern Festival (Jan 15th in lunar calendar). Putting the spring festival scrolls up, hanging the lanterns, having the reunion meals, having dumplings, sitting up late and waiting for the ring of the New Year are all the Spring Festival’s custom. During the half month, firecrackers, fireworks display, lion dance and dragon dance are necessary activities. The rest depends on local customs, here we have flower bridge, flower market, clay sculpture show and local opera. Sometimes we fly Kongming Lanterns too (warn: don't do that in Russia, it will cause forest fire. We are not afraid though, because we have no forest to burn ;)).

You're right! I'm glad that you liked the picture. 

BTW, I've got your comments, thank you! ^_^

Now I try  every minute of my free time to devote to reading. Unfortunately, rather often, I have to read books by English speaking authors in Russian. In that case I find excerpts from these books on the Internet.

I wish you the best year!
