Festivities ahead
And further change

For a goodly section of humankind, tomorrow will the first day of the Year of the Horse.

I draw no astrological conclusions from this, for myself or anyone else. But the Chinese New Year is now a matter of public remark in the West, which might remind the tiny, contained world of Western Conductive Education that there also exists a huge presence out there, Oriental Conductive Education. This presence has grown at rates beyond the wildest imaginings of many in the West. It follows it own ways, does its own research and publishes its own technical literature. It certainly has its own history and possibly its own future.

In the big wide world outside CE, effects of China's economic development have been felt in almost every every aspect of everyday life. Recently this development has begun to slow. In the Year of the Horse that will affect us too. Whatever happens, China does not go away. And as they say, allegedly –
A good horse never turns its head to eat the grass behind.
Now what on Earth does that mean?

Chinese New Year festivities begin tonight and last for up to fortnight. Conductive World will publish a few postings of a Chinese nature. The first, a scene-setter, appeared two days ago:
