As this year fades to an end allowing the New to bloom and blossom, I thank each and every one of you for your visits here, my online living room. Most of all I’ve appreciated when you take time to leave me a note and times when you’ve touched my heart by sharing some intimate or meaningful moment from your life, present or past. Thank you.
This year I have two main wishes for you. First,
“My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.” — Maya Angelou
And, as always, the other wish I have for you:
“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 Gaiman
And, since it wouldn’t be me to ask for a story or engage in some manner of conversation, here is my final question to you to close out 2016 …
Without revealing your actual age, what is something you remember that if you told a younger person, they wouldn’t understand? (I’ll share a couple in the comments below with the rest of you!)
