2015 Best

by Marsha December. 31, 2015 3278 views

For the New Year and beyond I'll echo the words of Neil Gaiman in the quote below…“make mistakes” - what a concept! Have a very Happy New Year, my friends!

“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.”

― Neil Gaiman

Such a fantastic shot, words fail me, an absolutely beautiful part of the world I would love to visit one day. And great words from Mr Gaiman...although for me, personally, last year & the year before were my years for making mistakes (took voluntary redundancy from a job I loved, still regret it, took another couple of jobs, the latest still isn't the right 'fit'...etc, etc) so this year I'd like to maybe get something right rather than make another mistake! But he's right, if I hadn't have taken the plunge I wouldn't have known, & it has been an interesting learning curve. Happy New Year to you, & may all your mistakes at least bear fruit.

Beautiful choice, Marsha! It always surprises me when I see this location "from a distance"... I was there once and everything feels so "big" when you're there and here surrounded by the rest of the setting it looks so different! Wishing you many mistakes in 2016!
