Wonderful holiday wishes to you! I was in a cabin on the northern California coast this past weekend, enjoying a sweet technology break not unlike the one I experienced (involuntarily) in China.
Now on this last day of 2013 I’m pleased to announce:
January 2014, Read Double Happiness Month
Imagine meeting a new friend or having a great conversation with an old friend through reading Double Happiness. I have long envisioned building community through the book. I’m launching Read Double Happiness Month next Wednesday evening, January 8. I’ll do a webcast, reading from the second chapter, page 8, and leading a short discussion. The whole experience will be 15-20 minutes, starting at 6:30pm Pacific Time.
Please join us, whether or not you’ve read the first few pages, on page 8 on the 8th. If you do read the first few pages before the 8th, consider these questions as something to possibly share during the event:
- The book begins with a dragon and a blacksmith. Who is the blacksmith? What does the dragon eat?
- When did you first find yourself in a completely foreign place?
- What two roads diverged for you in your early twenties?
If you don’t have your copy of the book yet:

Over the next two months, we will move through the book like a backpacker on a beautiful mountain trail, and I will read chapters, answer questions, lead discussions, and do a photo slideshow.
- Wed. Jan 8, 6:30p — Chapter 2 (pp 7-8)
- Wed. Jan 22, 6:30p — Chapter 13 (pp 79-80)
- Fri. Jan 31 — TBA (Chinese New Year!)
- Further dates TBA
