I get a kick out of checking my horoscope in the newspaper when I am in the States. The astrological signs are not as popular in Japan as blood types. Most here will ask, "What's your blood type?" Your blood type hints at your character and how you may behave in the future. Do you know your blood type? I am not really sure of mine. Type A Best traits Earnest, creative, sensible Worst traits Fastidious, overearnest Type B Best traits Wild, active, doer Worst traits Selfish, irresponsible Type AB Best traits Cool, controlled, rational Worst traits Critical, indecisive Type O Best traits Agreeable, sociable, optimistic Worst traits Vain, rude (chart is thanks to Wikipedia) My shadow shots last Sunday were about my visit to a local shrine. Today's photo is from that same visit. My Chinese Zodiac is the Dragon. Evidently, I prefer to live by my own rules ! The shrine had a small statue for each sign and I got my shadow on the Dragon.
