The Always Insightful Words of Neil Gaiman

When Neil Gaiman writes a New Year's wish on his blog, it's always golden. (If you haven't read CORALINE or THE GRAVEYARD BOOK or STARDUST or ODD AND THE FROST GIANTS, fix that immediately.) Here's the link to this year's journal post, which highlights all of the others he's written throughout the years.

I particularly love 2010's:

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something."
