hop to it

Apparently, National Letter Writing Week was January 9th through 16th and I missed it completely. But these Lunar New Year stamps come out on Saturday, so I will get a sheet or three and commemorate it after the fact. Beneath the paper cut design of a rabbit is the Chinese calligraphy symbol for one. Kumquats are traditionally eaten for good luck and hope. Instead of a price, the word forever is in the bottom right corner of the stamp. I can't pinpoint exactly why, but there seems something kinda' joyful about this being The Year of the Rabbit. Time to get a jump on it.
