We are living in the Year of the Dragon (Jan. 22, 2012 – Feb. 9, 2013) — the most auspicious sign in the Chinese Zodiac. And seven months still remain to explore your dragnon-ness and fight off the St. Georges in your life!

I’ll admit it, whenever I hear the story of St. George and the dragon, I root for the serpentine, fire-breathing beast. To me, the dragon embodies the artistic spirit — and, hey, sometimes you just have to get ferocious to keep your spirit alive.
