Happy New Year!

I wanted to post something hopeful and inspirational here as a nice way to start the year, but sometimes it is better to defer to the words of others and simply join in the sentiment. New Year's wishes from Neil Gaiman...

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 that 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 transcript from this video. The audio is fairly decent, but I typed the transcript out just in case you had trouble understanding what he says.

Happy New Year!
