Here are a few sentiments I am planning to take with me into 2012..
The first comes from a dear friend who said something profound to me yesterday. And, the second, from Spring Greens, who I have gotten to know remotely over the past year... and she's awesome...
"We all have the same 24 hours, it's what you do with them that matters..."
"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." via Neil Gaiman
