ABOUT NEW YEAR (2008)
Originally, there were no Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter as we call now, but only the movement or change of things or energy in space.
Since human beings observed the movement or change, and marked it by naming it, therefore, now we have the four seasons recyling.
Consequently, we have something called New Year, as we have now.
Naming is distincting and vice versa.
Human beings are also the energy which is moving and changing non-stop.
Some poet once said something like this:

"The Spring of heaven and earth has just come now,
But it is already here in my heart's timelessness.
Since we love each other,
The flowers always blossom in the garden of my heart."
