"To yield readily - easily - to the persuasion of a friend is no merit. ...To yield without conviction is no compliment to the understanding of either."
Take me to your trees. Take me to your breakfasts, your sunsets, your bad dreams, your shoes, your nouns. Take me to your fingers.
Margaret Atwood, Good Bones
Woody Guthrie’s New Year’s Resolutions 1942
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.
