As only you can … looking for potential

“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.”~ Neil Gaimon

We spend the first day of January walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives … not looking for flaws, but for potential.” -Ellen Goodman

Happy New Year Diane. Sending wishes for a good recovery and a positive/optimistic vibe. Waiting to hear that you are back at piano and picking up the pieces as you go. xo
