2012 Wishes

Mostly, I'd like to go to a Japanese spa and follow Neil Gaiman's wish for 2012, 

"And for this year, my wish for each of us is small and very simple.

And it's this.

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.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever."


  1. Mina said what I was going to say. So I'll just say this.


    Thanks for sharing that Wish from Neil Gaiman.

    Also, it reminded me of this:

  2. I love Gaiman and you. Your shared wish is a good wish.
