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. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
“A single dream is more important than a thousand realities…” –J.R. Tolkien
Our dreams are immensely powerful because they take us in new directions we would never have imagined and open new horizons we would never have otherwise seen. Even if our dreams are never realized in the exact manner we expect, they still transform us and the direction of our lives in myriad ways.
