2012 – Our Year of Ganesh

In honor of new beginnings, new perspectives, and fresh starts, I’ve decided to declare 2012 “Our Year of Ganesh.”

Ganesh is the:

  • mover of obstacles
  • god of wisdom and prudence
  • the scribe
  • the lord of success

All qualities I think we could use a bit more focus on, don’t you think?

To start, the kids and I will be re-reading a favorite, “Elephant Prince:  The Story of Ganesh” by Amy Novesky (and “How Ganesh Got His Elephant Head” by Harish Johari if I can find a copy at the library).  I’m also working on finding a small statue to go on the mantle as a focal point for our home.

Here’s to moving through obstacles (inside and out!) together.
