Wishes for you, and me, in 2011

That you might be surrounded by friends who remind you of who you are, and have room for the yous you are;
That you might find joy in noticing daily details, like dancing cobwebs, whooshing winds, the character of the birds who live in your tree;
That sadness might sweep you clean, rather than clean you out;
That you feel those you have lost walking beside you, or that dreams of them may soothe you;
That you discover new books, new colours, new sounds that delight you;
That you find comforting perspectives on whatever haunts you at 3am;
That you might find a way to exercise kindness to all people, or at least find ways to tolerate those you despise or fear;
That kindness in general comes from you, and to you;
That you might keep increasing in curiosity;
That these things are only the beginning.
