I went to Sokoji in San francisco to ring the temple's bell.
A buddist monk : The sound of ring shows your mind.
Boom boom boom boom boom
I likes the sound of the bell ringing through out the room. While I was listening the sound, suddenly it turned to 2012. I like the turning to 2012 from 2011 was not very dramatic. After rang the temple bell, I had macha tea and zenzai(sweet red beans soup).
Thank you 2011, and hello 2012!!
