One of the greatest mysteries of all times is seemingly answered, part of the answer through archeological evidence. You tell me, after reading the evidence, do dragons exist?

I'll never tell. I have been pondering this one for a while. Maybe I'll tell you where to find a dragon breeder smile I never play with fiction much, so I am having fun exploring it. I would imagine, this story will be explored with much more depth.

To Diana,

This is loong/dragon writing to you.If it's an April fools day
article, I do not find it funny.The dragon is known in every
country .Some say the dragon is bad ,the chinese are in Asia
the only people that consider a dragon to be good.

However ,behind every legend is truth.

I do not know to smile or not,

a simple Buddhist named

Do Dragons exist Loong? Well perhaps not in the form that Walt Disney portrays them but in certain forms, including animal life, yes.

I also follow the Buddhist philosophy and have done since my teenage years�..which is a long time ago�.. and have learnt that sometimes life must not be taken too seriously.

One of my sons was born in a Chinese Dragon year and yes when one reads about the whole thing that surrounds that year, he is definitely a Dragon from that particular period, whilst his brother, a completely different animal, is basically true to his period also.

What was it the Dalai Lama said:
Quote:
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.


And he could add humor, because our current Dalai Lama has proved he has that in abundance many times over.

So I would say �smile' Loong, the Dalai Lama probably would.

Dear Loong,
I am glad you did not find it funny because it was not meant to be funny. My dragon is a representation for what is good, kind, loving, and perhaps a beginning of something better. I intentionally published on April Fool's Day only because it is the one day of the year when I can perhaps, get away with a bit of fiction, a taste of my soul, the beauty of my dragon. We all personify the dragon differently. The veil is very thin between the living world and the spirit world. They overlap. To me my dragon is what humanity could be, if perhaps more people had followed Budda's teachings. We need to know WHO we are and what we are capable of, my dragon personifies exactly that.

I think it is a beautiful story and a breath of fresh air. The dragon is mythical and the story should be taken as it was meant to be taken. We all take ourselves to seriously if we can take joy in this story.

There is no need for apology. I never imagined offending anyone with my dance with fantasy. I just felt it was important for you to understand the reasons behind my story. It troubles me if I hurt anyone's feelings, for any reason.

Things affect me deeply. I found an ant in my microwave, it still sickens me to think he suffered on account of me. I will never turn it on again without looking first!
