Jan 1, 2017
2016 was a hard year for so many reasons. We lost so many great artists, and I suffered a year of loss that I’ve never experienced. And on this first day in 2017, I just wanted to leave a message for everyone who is hoping that it is the year of amazing, wonderful memories. I think it’s safe to say that we are all hoping for an amazing 2017. And after all of that I want to leave a quote from one of my favorite people and authors because I think we are all going to need to remember these things in the upcoming year.
“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, to understand. 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.”
