Neil Gaiman's lovely "New Year's Wish"
Art by me.
What are you hoping for the new year ahead?
Best thoughts, Marilyn.
“Be kind to yourself in the year ahead.
Remember to forgive yourself, and to forgive others. It’s too easy to
be outraged these days, so much harder to change things, to reach out,
Try to make your time matter: minutes and hours
and days and weeks can blow away like dead leaves, with nothing to show
but time you spent not quite ever doing things, or time you spent
waiting to begin.
Meet new people and talk to them. Make new things and show them to people who might enjoy them.
Hug too much. Smile too much. And, when you can, love.”
