I’ve been in absentia largely due to a stupid asthma attack which has lingered the past two weeks. There was also a pretty impressive case of hives one night, too. But I’m not letting that keep me down. We went out with friends last night and we are getting ready to paint the town tonight. Well, sort of. Anyway, in lieu of a well-thought-out post about endings and new beginnings, I’ll instead share a quote that I’ve loved for some time and which is making the rounds on Facebook in the past day or two.
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. May your coming year be a wonderful thing in which you dream both dangerously and outrageously. I hope you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and you will be liked and you will have people to love and to like in return. And most importantly, because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now – I hope that you will, when you need to be, be wise and that you will always be kind. And I hope that somewhere in the next year you surprise yourself.”- Neil Gaiman
Happy New Year!
