A New Years Wish

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.

That's a lovely sentiment, Steve. Thanks. I'm taking a different approach to my resolutions this year, focusing more on the why than the what.

Back atcha, bud! Gaiman's not my favorite, but I have to admit, that's a good one.

That's the nicest New Year wish I think I've ever read. I have to go...I'm all choked up now and that makes me feel shy.

Happy New Year to you and the Tiny Dynamo :)
