Life in the Kitchen Part I

A week ago, on New Year’s Day, leaving our room and coming out in the darkened workroom around 1:30 am (windows but no door separating it from the outside), a bat swerved, just missing my head twice. Normally viewed as a harbinger of darkness in western culture, the bat is a sign of blessing in Chinese/Taiwanese culture: the second character in the Chinese word “bat” sounds like the word for blessing. Hope everyone had a Happy Chinese Year!
