Happy New Year 2021

As I peruse my Facebook memories from previous New Year's Eves, I look to writing this one in the time of Covid. I think back on the past months and look for a little perspective and I search for the silver lining.

But in the end, 2020 sucked. It took from us people who still had a future ahead of them. It took from us our freedom. It took from us our time and energy. I am ready for it to go. See ya, don't let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya!

So, for 2021, I wish you health and happiness. We are all stronger for having gone through 2020 and yes, we are still struggling, but the new day and new year is another opportunity to try again. Stand up, dust off the dirt, and put up your dukes. Remember you life is in your control. Make good decisions. Make informed decisions. Live your life!

Most folks go out and make a long list of resolutions. You know what? Just pick one thing that will make you happy and knock it out of the park. Even if that thing is going to get a good hamburger from your favorite restaurant. Small happies make a happy life. It's cliche' but it's true, it's the little things. Happy New Year to you and yours and much love from me and the Kid.

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. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself. ~Neil Gaiman
