Hello, Goodbye.

Each year, I post a quote from Neil Gaiman as my New Year’s greeting. Wasn’t able to do something creative with it this year, but I’ll post it anyway.

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”

– Neil Gaiman

I wish you the best for the coming year. More books to read, more creative endeavors, good health and happiness for you and your kin, more opportunities to travel and discover this wonderful world of ours. More music to sing and dance to, more sunrises to wake up for and more sunsets to cherish. More laughter, more appreciation, more time with your loved ones. More hugs and kisses, more cheers and adventures of the good kind.

A blessed, fruitful, creative, happy, healthy, prosperous and all that is beautiful and good for your 2014!

Last Sunset of 2013... hidden behind trees.
