A Perfect New Year's Wish

Beautiful words to start the year from author Neil Gaiman.

"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. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

...I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that 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), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind. "  

Neil Gaiman

What else could anyone possibly say?

Have a lovely beginning to a fruitful New Year, P.

P.S. This is post 300! I will be taking a few days to get my New Year off to a good start. When I come back there will be a celebratory give away. See you then.
Pin It!
