What a pleasant surprise I just received – a Rowan Newsletter for January 2013 with a review of my book “Sketch and Stitch”in it. 2013 is the year of the Black Water Snake which begins on February 10th. This 2013 year of Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to details. Focus and discipline will be necessary to achieve what you set out to create. Snake years are considered favorable, so 2013 should be a positive year for business and personal fortunes. So far I have a very positive beginning of this year of Snake. I was born in the year of Snake.
