“It’s a New Year and with it comes a fresh opportunity to shape our world. So this is my wish, a wish for me as much as it is a wish for you: in the world to come, let us be brave – let us walk into the dark without fear, and step into the unknown with smiles on our faces, even if we’re faking them.
And whatever happens to us, whatever we make, whatever we learn, let us take joy in it. We can find joy in the world if it’s joy we’re looking for, we can take joy in the act of creation. So that is my wish for you, and for me. Bravery and joy.”
-Neil Gaiman’s NY2013 wish
Sharing his brilliant wish and making it my own as well for this new year. Happy New Year everyone. Make it fantastic!
Why a proposed book-burning party was a Very Good Thing Indeed.
(PLEASE Watch this. Be proud of your libraries. And remember, it’s not about taxes. It’s about knowledge, and humanity, and access to the internet, and what libraries are and represent, and what librarians do.)
reverse psychology at its best! Always vote YES to support your libraries!!!
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other involves orcs.
The world needs fantasy, not reality. We have enough reality today.
