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.
