Helen and I just had the laziest New Years day ever! We just had our own Kagami Baraki of DVD watching, specifically Veronica Mars, a very cool TV series about (I know it sounds lame) a girl who helps her father who is a private investigator. It’s a very cool detective story – thoroughly recommended.
For the 99.9% of people who don’t know what Kagami Baraki is, it’s a Japanese ceremony held at the start of the year, where you are supposed to reflect about your life and actions of the previous year, and (if you are involved in martial arts especially) reaffirm your commitment to training. Well we certainly didn’t “energize our whole year” this weekend, but it was great having such a relaxing time.
