Joyous New Year

As we begin a new year I'd like the share the following wishes for all of us in this brand new year.
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 that you will have people to love and 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!!

  2. I love these sentiments, Penny - they remind me of how truly blessed I am in life, and that I mostly follow the path I lay for myself (in being kind, that is).. Many wishes for an exciting and artful 2012 to you!!

  3. "That you will be loved and you will be liked" - there's someone who knows the difference. Good sentiments and a good start to the year!
